MEDITATION OF THE DAY (Re-blogged)

“Suffering overwhelms you because you take it like a coward. Meet it bravely, with a Christian spirit: and you will regard it as a treasure.”
— St. Josemaria Escriva
  MEDITATION OF THE DAY
“Of all the divine attributes, only God’s omnipotence is named in the Creed: to confess this power has great bearing on our lives. We believe that his might is universal, for God who created everything also rules everything and can do everything. God’s power is loving, for he is our Father, and mysterious, for only faith can discern it when it ‘is made perfect in weakness.’ The Holy Scriptures repeatedly confess the universal power of God. He is called the ‘Mighty One of Jacob,’ the ‘Lord of hosts,’ the ‘strong and mighty’ one. If God is almighty ‘in heaven and on earth,’ it is because he made them. Nothing is impossible with God, who disposes his works according to his will. He is the Lord of the universe, whose order he established and which remains wholly subject to him and at his disposal. He is master of history, governing hearts and events in keeping with his will: ‘It is always in your power to show great strength, and who can withstand the strength of your arm?'”—The Catechism of the Catholic Church, 268-9
