Saints-F


Saints whose name begins with the letters F

It is a common temptation to become impatient in times of delicate health and infirmity, as if we were no good for anything, and instead of being useful to others, were only a burden to them. This is a serious delusion, which robs us of great merit. If our dear Lord permits us to become weak and unfit for work, He is offering us the opportunity to accumulate merits for heaven by patient suffering and resignation to His holy will. And if others should be put to much trouble in caring for us, that can also redound greatly to their spiritual benefit, for it will bring them precious merits.

Sometimes, too, there is the delusion (and the resultant dissatisfaction with life) that we are of no earthly use, just because we are not in a condition to do everything. As we often see, a good will and confidence in God often change a weak man into a strong one, and make him much more useful than others who are in the best of health. But even apart from that, it is sufficient in the sight of God that we work according to the measure of strength and ability given to us. That servant in the Gospel who had acquired two talents with the two that had been given him, received the same reward as the one who gained five with the five he had received; but woe to the slothful servant who, though he has been given only one talent, has not used it to gain at least another one with it.

Consider that personal weakness and suffering should especially incline a person to be sympathetic with other sufferers. For that very reason the Son of God took upon Himself the weakness of human nature so that He could “have compassion on our infirmities” (Heb. 4-15)
