suffering

73 | Gospel of Suffering part 2


All human sufferings are capable of being infused with the same power of God manifested in Christ’s Cross, writes John Paul II in Salvifici Doloris. We have solidarity with Christ in suffering. This solidarity and participation in the cross that unites us with the Holy Spirit is a reality to be experienced and confounds explanations and theories. Moreover, the church is not passive in the face of the world’s suffering; on the contrary, we are asked to go precisely to where people are suffering– and the Spirit comes with us. The disorders of our culture show us where we have not met others in their suffering and have not brought God’s healing restoration to them.
