“And He was made
Mary is hope and strength for all of us who see those we love suffer. We want to take away the suffering, be it physical or mental or emotional but we can’t always do that and maybe there are times we shouldn’t. Suffering can help us grow in many ways and it can change us. Suffering usually means pain and none of us want pain. That’s why we say “offer it up,” in hope that our suffering will ease someone else’s.
