Paul says in our second reading that he “makes up in his own sufferings what is lacking in the sufferings of Christ.” This means that Paul-and all of us-have the enormous privilege of participating in the act by which Christ saved the world, an act of suffering love. How do you interpret your own pain? Might it be a participation in the salvation of Christ?
