Ad astra per aspera! To the stars through difficulties! This phrase comes to my mind when I think of what my parish is celebrating this weekend. This weekend we are celebrating our parish feast day, The Triumph of the Holy Cross! Through difficulties we will find joy and happiness. This feast commemorates how Jesus had to suffer and die before He could rise to new life. This is also what we must realize about our own lives. We have many burdens and crosses to bear before we can reach our eternal happiness and joy in heaven. We have many difficulties we must/may face, but in the end we will reach the stars!
To the stars through difficulties! Ad astra per aspera!
