Romans 8:18 Suffering

Romans 8:18
I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.

Reflection - No Suffering, No Love

God has so loved us that he gave himself up for us: This is the message of the Cross, 'mystery of death and of glory.'"

"The cross reminds us that there is no true love without suffering, there is no gift of life without pain,"

We have two treasures of the Christian faith: the Holy Spirit and the cross."

The Spirit opens human intelligence to horizons that surpass it and makes it understand the beauty and truth of God's love revealed, in fact, on the cross.
A love of which no one will be able to separate us, and that is experienced by giving one's life as Christ did.
