Sr. Paula's Prayer Meeting April 11, 2017

Suffering is one thing in life that is hard to understand.  As Father Adrien van Kamp used to say, life is a mystery to be lived not a problem to be solved.  Our sufferings or those of others would make us understand why Jesus came down on earth and suffered during his last days.  He knew we would need an example to follow.  Let me quote this haiku I wrote based on the wonderful talk by Father Don Breier at Baden during the auxiliary recollection last month.

 Why Me?

Turned into "Why not?"
When He suffered just like me.
So "Why not me?" then.
