“If one member suffers, all suffer together.”
-1 Corinthians 12:26
In the Mystical Body, we are one in Christ Jesus. Even when it is not consciously experienced, suffering — the common denominator of the human condition — unites us with an unbreakable bond. But suffering itself begs us to ask questions. Why do we suffer? Why does God permit suffering to exist? What is suffering’s purpose? Ponder them during your time of prayer today.
