We are all pilgrims going across the stage of life, each carrying his/her own cross.  If one falters, the whole procession is disturbed.

Communion can be of many kinds.  there is a communion which we experience through suffering.  God lies hidden in the heart of suffering.  When suffering is accepted, He works miracles of redemption at its very heart, miracles which pave the way for an increase of grace.
