The Gift

” I had made a total gift of myself to God.” – Saint Magdalene of Canossa

Suffering is the fruit of love. We do not ask for it; we do not desire it; we accept it as a result of our choice to love. For love is a sacrifice that puts to death ones own desires for the benefit of another. In in this, there is new life born. It is in this, a priceless gift is given.
