Suffering

“I have seen that you have been suffering, I have suffered with you. We are so much one! Yet I could not have wished it otherwise. I have placed you with Jesus like His Amen deep in the Father’s bosom. He loves you infinitely more and infinitely better than I do. I yield you up to Him as Mary yielded up Jesus, and if He wills to fasten you on the cross with your Spouse, if He wills for you shame, suffering, and misunderstanding,” pg 68
