Sunday Sermon, March 14th -- Perfect Joy and Immense Sorrow in Our Lord's Passion (Father Ryan Erlenbush, Corpus Christi Parish)

 Throughout his Passion as in every moment of his life, our Lord enjoyed the beatific vision. He always remained perfectly united with his heavenly Father and his human soul experienced beatitude. However, likewise, he suffered intensely during the Passion, even to the point of experiencing feelings of abandonment. 

If we look honestly at the Seven Last Words of Jesus from the Cross, we see a man in immense suffering but also perfectly at peace.  This is a model for us, to maintain peace and even joy in the midst of suffering.
