Discomfort for a greater good
There will be morning sickness, there will be exhaustion. This trimester can bring extra levels of fatigue and discomfort. But it's worth it. Our faith teaches that we can offer up our pain. In the words of Pope St. John Paul II: “In bringing about the Redemption through suffering, Christ has also raised human suffering to the level of the Redemption. Thus each person, in their suffering, can also become a sharer in the redemptive suffering of Christ" (Salvifici Doloris, 19)
