“You’ll always have the gift and you’ll always have the cross.” – Session 2 Day 3 of the Australian Spiritual Retreat

Msgr. Esseff shares a poignant reflection on rejection, loss, suffering, and aloneness.  We experience various forms of suffering, but as it is said “success has a hundred mothers, failure is an orphan”.  Why is the cross so important to those who are united with Him?  Its in the cross that we experience His presence.  He shares a very compelling story he was given permission to share, which concerns a Sister, Mother Teresa, anger, forgiveness and love…it’s a heartbreaking tale…one where ultimately love prevails.  “You’ll always have the gift and you’ll always have the cross.” – Bl. Mother Teresa
