Suffering for/with our Lord

Question from Mickey Mouse on 3/14/2008:

St.Francis and others suffered on purpose to help save souls. I understand that but, what I don't understand is how they liked it. They relished it. Why don't I feel that way? Am I doing it wrong? I keep my offerings of suffering to myself and only reveal them to Him and a few priest in confession. I feel selfish in wanting to "like it" as St.Francis and others did. What's wrong with me? Any thooughts?

Answer by Richard Geraghty on 3/14/2008:
Dear Mickey,

There is nothing wrong with you. You are just being human. And most humans are a long way from being in the same class as St. Francis. So keep plodding along your way, which is the ordinary way.

Dr. Geraghty
