Ep. 30: Suffering is Not Negotiable Sweetheart |If You Want to Be a Saint!

suffering is not negotiable

“Suffering is not negotiable, sweetheart,” is a paraphrase of something Mother Angelica said. She stated, ” Holiness is not for wimps and the cross is not negotiable, sweetheart, it’s a requirement.”

And yet, we hate to suffer. I know I do.

However, suffering will come and when it does come, God will give us the grace to handle it.

In this Episode

  • We all will suffer. To get to heaven, we must suffer.
  • Even if you feel weak, God will give you the grace and strength to handle your suffering.
  • God sends us suffering because he loves us.
  • Suffering unites us with Christ and his goals.
  • What my experience with the events of 9/11 says about my desire to suffer.
  • What being robbed at gunpoint tells me about my desire to suffer.
