Saint Mary Magdalene de Pazzi, called the “ecstatic saint” had many highs and lows in her lifetime. At 16 she entered the Monastery of St. Mary of the Angels, a Carmelite Cloister that receive daily communion, unusual for that time. She wanted a hidden life but her ecstasies prohibited that and she humbly accepted it. She received many visions and ecstasies but also desolation, temptations, and dryness. Her continuous physical sufferings and severe spiritual trials were a great burden but she was enriched by God with extraordinary graces. Her response to suffering was to show love and gratitude for the gift of suffering.
