Suffering with Jesus
Our sufferings are real. God does not heal everyone immediately.
Our sufferings are salvific. Jesus extends His mercy through us, with us, and in us.
The Body of Christ plus us is different from the Body of Christ without us. Jesus can't be me or you. Jesus can't suffer our sufferings. We have a unique gift to give--we ourselves ''are'' the gift! Each one of us is unique. We can say yes or no to being united to Jesus in His suffering on the Cross. The history of love is different when we and our sufferings are included. We have something of value to give to Jesus and to every member of the Body through our experiences of suffering.
:; [ CCC 1508]
