Fr. Christopher Panagoplos, TOR, reflects on one of the most profound mysteries of our Faith – the meaning of suffering.

“Why did Jesus suffer?  God the Father wishes this perishable nature to put on imperishability, and this mortal nature to put on immortality.  Jesus accomplishes this by sacrificing His own life.  In this way, Jesus becomes our High Priest, entering into a new Holy of Holies—the sanctuary of His own body, offering there this new sacrifice—keeping the Father’s will, loving even His enemies infinitely more that they would hate Him.”
