"to carry our cross as He did"

Christ also suffered for us, leaving you an example that you should follow his steps.  ~1 Peter 2:21

Let us ask, not to be exempt from suffering, but to be enlightened as to its value. "Lord, that I may see!" As soon as the blind man recovered his sight, he immediately followed Jesus, "glorifying God!" The supernatural light which we seek from the Lord will give us the strength to follow Him and to carry our cross as He did.  ~Father Gabriel of St. Mary Magdalen, O.C.D., in Divine Intimacy

Passion of Christ, strengthen me!
