How are often are we quick to get bent out of shape about the daily mishaps in our lives (ketchup spilling on our shirt)? Let alone the medium things, (a fender bender?) The pic. offers a wonderful idea- Offer these things up. Instead of complaining about the injustice of the world, think of how many souls Mary, or Christ can free from purgatory from your inconvenience. Or the dying soul they can help, who has never known Christ. As Pope John Paul II would say, Thank you for loving me this…

St. John Vianney on following Christ: "You cannot please both God and the world at the same time. They are utterly opposed to each other in their thoughts, their desires, and their actions" "I tell you that you have less to suffer in following the Cross than in serving the world and its pleasures." "If people would do for God what they do for the world, what a great number of Christians would go to Heaven."
