Consecrated Suffering from Thom

“Suffering, therefore, can only be consecrated to God by one who believes that Jesus is not dead. And it is of the very essence of Christianity to face suffering and death not because they are good, not because they have meaning but because the Resurrection of Jesus as robbed them of their meaning.” – Thomas Merton, No Man Is An Island
