I began Holy Lent in the way that Jesus wanted me to,
making myself totally dependent upon His Holy Will
and accepting with love everything that He sends me.
I cannot practice any greater mortifications, because I am so very weak.
This long illness has sapped my strength completely.
I am uniting myself with Jesus through suffering.
When I meditate on His Painful Passion,
my physical sufferings are lessened.
