"Let us trust in Him who has placed this burden upon us. What we ourselves cannot bear let us bear with the help of Christ. For He is all-powerful, and He tells us: 'My yoke is easy, and my burden light.'" (St. Boniface) Trials and difficulties are part of the human
journey because of original and personal sin. Our struggles are permitted by God to purify and perfect us. We can complain, turn to anger or self-pity, or we can surrender ourselves into the hand of God. The former will only intensify the pain and bring us
further unhappiness. The latter will give us strength from God to embrace the struggle with him. We are not alone in carrying this cross. "My yoke is easy, and my burden light."
