Catholic Pilgrimage via Aleteia | That God can make beautiful things out of pain. In God’s eyes, pain and suffering can be worth more than we think. People often think that when they are in pain, whether it is spiritual or physical, it doesn’t matter.
Even so, in God’s eyes, all pain and suffering can be a way to get to heaven.
The pain that Jesus went through to open the gates of Heaven to us is even more real when we look at a crucifix.
Short Bible verse from the prophet Isaiah can help us see the beauty that can come from pain.
But I said, “I have labored in vain,
I have spent my strength for nothing and vanity;
yet surely my right is with the Lord,
and my recompense with my God.”
I am honored in the eyes of the Lord,
and my God has become my strength.
