We all have headaches, we all have annoying clients that don’t seem to leave us alone at work. We all simply have inconvenient days that might be a combination of all these things. Some of our crosses are light like a small headache; others are quite bigger like suffering from scrupulously like I do. Yet we all have them. The point is for us to offer them up and carry them.
Saint Therese of Liseux is a great example of this. She often carried her crosses by making small sacrifices throughout the day. She thanked people when she was offered food that she didn’t really like, she took the blame when it was the fault of another sister, she smiled at people that she didn’t really get along with. What better example of penance and sacrifice than Saint Therese.
