December 9, 2020. Day 344: Rejoice inasmuch as you participate in the sufferings of Christ.

“To live is Christ” makes all our suffering a reason to rejoice. Not because we suffer, but because in suffering we can share in Christ. Share in his acceptance by God. Share in his friendship with the Spirit. Share in his courage. Share in his holiness. Share in his goodness and compassion. Share in his love. Share in his very life. And then, one day, share in his eternal glory.
