Point 13

“In anxieties, sorrows, and afflictions, have recourse in spirit to Jesus Crucified; make known to Him your sufferings with entire confidence, offer them to Him, and take courage in the thought that if you suffer something for the love of Jesus, you therefore resemble Him, and bear Him company in His sufferings, and are meriting the glory of Heaven.  Remember that Jesus has suffered more than you do, and that He suffered for your sake.”
