“Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Thus it is written that the Christ would suffer . . .”
Jesus grew up with the Hebrew Scriptures so knew that suffering would mark His life which must have affected the way He lived.
How has suffering affected your attitude or way of living?
Seek refuge in Jesus in times of suffering since He “has been there.”
Heritage word—“We can only bear witness to what we ourselves have experienced.”
(Pope Francis, Lent 2015 Message)
