1) Don’t give up
2) Pick up your cross
4) Ask for help
And your cross will become lighter, or sweeter, or easier to carry.
This is the formula God gives us.
I’m not good at math, but I’ve been doing this over and over and over again for a while now, and I’m here to tell ya — it works.
Don’t give up. Pick up your cross. Pray. Ask for help. Or intercessory prayers. And your cross will become lighter, or sweeter, or easier to carry. Hang in there.
“We are building a civilization; and you carry within you one of the most important pieces. Jesus called it your cross. Friend, pick it up.” (Serviam Ministries)
It’s key to eternal happiness. St. John Bosco wrote that the most intelligent and happiest of men was he, who, “knowing that he is doomed to carry the cross throughout life, willingly and resignedly accepts the one God sends him.”
