ABSOLUTELY! I’m praying for you and for all involved around your back pain, especially.
I agree with Theresa that God wills for this to be… at least for now. May I suggest, like does Theresa, that you offer it up.
There’s something about offering up our pains that has a direct influence on promoting good somewhere/somewhen in the world. We may not even KNOW what it’s for… yet, as a Catholic I believe in “redemptive suffering.”
It’s the only thing that’s kept ME going through the suffering that I’ve been having in a huge way at this stage of my life. Sometimes I think that I can’t even deal with it… so I just give it up (in my mind, at least) and say “okay, God, You’ve allowed this pain… You may not have PREFERRED this suffering for me, Lord… but at least, nothing at all ever happens without at least Your PERMITTING it to happen, I’ll have to figure it’s Your will that I’m suffering like this.”
Then, I say “okay, Lord… I accept this pain… this moment, right now… so please, PLEASE take my pain, my suffering, and know that I’m offering it up for… (I fill in here whatever cause I have on my mind or my heart at the moment).”
I usually offer up my suffering, or my pain (even if it’s for only a stubbed toe!) for the “pour souls in Purgatory” who have nobody to pray for them.
I hope this doesn’t come across as my saying that your pain is NOT deep, NOT intense, NOT scary… just that it’s definitely an occassion to join it with Christ’s suffering on the cross and offer it up.
