The paradox

In the original version of St. Faustina's Diary the word „suffering” can be spotted almost 150 times.
Because of that some may think that above-mentioned book is the very sad one. That is not a case, for Faustina has given us a brand new outlook at suffering. The pain and disappointments may become easier to cope with as soon as you realise what this Polish nun knew:

“If the angels were capable of envy, they would envy us for two things: one is the receiving of Holy Communion, and the other is suffering”.

Amid all difficulties try to be as joyful as one can be at the time of receiving Christ...and a peace will come upon you.

Tomasz, Racibórz
