Article / The following is an excerpt from askfrfrancis.org. Fr. Francis Ching, CC answers tough questions about the Catholic faith. Question: I keep hearing Catholics say “to offer up your suffering”, or “uniting your suffering with Jesus on the cross”. Would you talk about what that means, and why you would do that? How can I learn more about it? Fr. Francis' answer:
Our Lord Jesus thirsts for our love, for our souls!
If we are still and allow our souls to be quiet we will discover the thirst of our Lord Jesus.
