Solid interior mortification

“The appropriate word you left unsaid; the joke you didn’t tell; the cheerful smile for those who bother you; that silence when you’re unjustly accused; your kind conversation with people you find boring and tactless; the daily effort to overlook one irritating detail or another in those who live with you…this, with perseverance, is indeed solid interior mortification.” (St. Josemaría Escrivá)

  1. Thank you Sr Dorcee for that timely post, I had a few moments today where I wanted to “react” to something and St. Josemaria’s words washed over me from this post – it was a deep reminder of what I am truly pursuing… and to let the rest go.
    God Bless!
