"Embracing suffering as a companion to the joy of love is the meaning of the cross. In the cross, our human suffering has been redeemed, and we never need to carry our heartaches and troubles alone. The whole point of this life is love, and the cost of love is pain."

- Sr. Julia Walsh, adapted from "In tough times, finding the balance," published on Global Sisters Report
