Suffering corresponds to a call

SUFFERING CORRESPONDS TO A CALL

     For it is a merit, if in sight of God, someone endures sorrows, suffering unjustly. For what glory is there, if it is for your sins that you bear suffering? But if doing good, you suffer patiently, it is a merit before God. For this is what you were called because Christ Himself suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you might follow His footsteps; He who did not commit sin, and in whose mouth was not deceit found. (I Peter II, 19-22) (1)

(1) The example of Christ, suffering without complaint, is a powerful encouragement to patience. The call to Christianity and the call to suffering are seen as one and the same thing by Jesus Christ and the apostles.
