Words to Live by – from Catholic Tradition
Let us rejoice in the sufferings of our present time,
in order that Christ will reign in us!
St. Augustine, the Great Doctor of Grace, gives us these words of comfort, that our tribulations are worthwhile:
Jesus reigns in us through the adversities we suffer.
Catena Aurea on St. Luke’s Gospel, St. Thomas Aquinas, quoting St. Augustine, Ch.23, §4.
