Feast of the Sacred Heart

Love consists not in feeling great things but in having great detachment and in suffering for the Beloved. 
St. John of the Cross

† It is loving the Cross that one finds one heart, for Divine Love cannot live without suffering.St. Bernadette

† Many would be willing to have afflictions provided that they not be inconvenienced by them." 
St. Francis de Sales

† He who wishes to love God does not truly love Him if he has not an ardent and constant desire to suffer for His sake. 
St. Aloysius Gonzaga

I think if one wishes to know where he stands in the Eyes of God,  one reflects on how well he suffers the ordinary things of every day life...
