St. John of the Cross - Sayings of Light and Love

I would do well these days to remember this one....

4. It is better to be burdened and in company with the strong than to be unburdened and with the weak. When you are burdened you are close to God, your strength, who abides with the afflicted. When you are relieved of the burden you are close to yourself, your own weakness; for virtue and strength of soul grow and are confirmed in the trials of patience.

And here is another one at Carmelitemom.

Blessings, Julia
