"If angels were capable of envy, they'd envy us for two things: one is the receiving of Holy Communion, the other is suffering."

"You will save more souls through sacrifice and prayer than will a missionary through his teachings and sermons alone."
- Our Lord to Saint Faustina

"Love wants to suffer for the Beloved - Love wants to expiate the sins that have so deeply penetrated mankind."
- Saint Therese
If you want to have a deeper love for Jesus, ask to suffer for the sins of sinners. Our suffering does not please him, as he hates to see his loved ones suffer, but the love beneath the suffering pleases him more than we can possibly fathom.
"We religious are co-redeemers of the world. And souls are not redeemed without the cross."
- Saint Teresa of the Andes
If you suffer for the redemption of sinners, God himself esteems you as a blessed Co-redeemer.
"A single act of pure love pleases me more than a thousand imperfect prayers."
- Jesus to Saint Faustina
