NO SUFFERING IS USELESS

CS-134 10-Mar-98

Jesus

1

In the beginning everything was fully harmonious

and satisfactory for every creature.

With sin, the equilibrium ended;

man lost his many benefits

and became a slave to moral and physical evil.

The first ones to sin but not the first in malice were Adam and Eve.

Earlier, many other sins had broken even more the balance of things,

so much so that all the actions from Hell

were and are directed to breaking the created order.

2

He who does not sin draws close to the predetermined order

but he cannot be exempt

from the accumulation of causes surrounding him.

3

Seen in this way, the problem of sorrow takes meaning

that is proper to its origin,

but its painful effects do not change

even in the presence of this superior vision of evil.

To blame oneself?

No, it is not fair.

It is better to make an effort to endure the pain;

to be calm is the best thing.

4

I assure you [Catalina] that you are not down here to suffer uselessly

and that it will all end soon.

Impatience is harmful and tolerance is beneficial.

Love, thus, is everything for lovers.

5

The divine life grows in excess; be of good cheer and trust.
