Love, sacrifice and pain – these three dimensions of the human existence are tightly interconnected.
Pain, whatever we may think of it, is not useless – even God himself had to suffer for our common good. It is impossible, however, to bear it without love. Mix your hardship together with devotion, in other words – flavor it with love; if you do so, each and every of your painful experience would flourish, becoming sacrificial, showing the loved ones that your love is genuine at the same time. Jesus knows it, that's why he did not end his Mission on the Holy Cross but rather began it from there, instructing us all that the real love shall serve God and His creatures without any excuses or restrictions, namely ''In season and out of season''.
PS. Please pray that, if this is God's Will, I may meet, get know and marry the woman (not a girl) who is not afraid of a cross...
