In speaking of Jesus Christ, one saint wrote: “Where, then, did He dwell but in suffering?” and David sang that this suffering was as immense as the sea. Every soul crushed by suffering, in whatever form it may occur, can tell itself: I dwell with Jesus Christ, we are living in intimacy, the same dwelling shelters us!
