As part of the communications
associated with Our Lady of the
Rosary of Fátima the faithful were informed not to seek
additional mortification to offer to God, but to offer/accept any
and all difficulties that we encounter in our daily lives for:
Love of Jesus, in reparation for the offenses committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary and for the conversion of poor sinners.
Why was this simple instruction which may appear as "just another exercise of piety", as many would say, important enough for the Mother of God to personally deliver it to mankind?
God did not want that mankind's ever increasing suffering be wasted since, if properly offered, it would become an auto corrective mechanism for mankind's ills.
How Does It Work?
1. If the suffering is needed by God
for the redemption of our
brothers and sisters, He will give us the strength to endure it as we,
though His Grace, help the disoriented Elect find their way to Heaven.
2. If the suffering is just out of the
meanness of satan, he will
soon stop the harassment. He is not about to contribute to the
redemption of mankind as his victim turns the suffering into an act of
Love for God and humanity.
