How to Let Suffering Become a Wise Teacher

When you encounter pain or suffering—physical or emotional—ask yourself, “What is this suffering teaching me? How am I being invited to grow?” 

Let your suffering become a wise teacher.

Blow Back the Thin Veil

They say there is a thin veil between us and the Divine, a sheer, silky curtain that sways in a heavenly wind between God’s heart and ours.

    I have spent many hours trying too hard. I have followed the words of others, seeking to emulate them by moving prayer from my head to my heart. All the while keeping God in his heavenly seat. The result: frustration and persistent failure.

    I envied those on my Zoom screen who simply converse with God. I attributed this intimacy to their involvement in chaplaincy or Ministry. God as friend. There, I have put my longing into words.

    My mom was not a regular church goer. Perhaps the Catholic Church would not consider her a “practicing Catholic”. However, my mom practiced God. She chatted with God, at times loud enough for the rest of us to hear. Clearly, God moved her through the day. Her chatter is memorable in its simplicity. Just talking to God.

    For me, getting to know God as a friend, a companion, has made all the difference. We are inseparable. God does not always speak to me, but he always listens. In quiet moments, I enjoy watching him pray. And I have learned to pray for him.

    I carry the image of the two of us locked inside my heart.
