Meaning of the Passion

The Passion of the Lord is often considered as something that happened to Jesus thousands of years ago. The church remembers it solemnly each year as embracing each person. Jesuit Paul Coutinho considers two meanings of the passion. The second engages us.
...the Passion is Good News in action. The Good News that Jesus came to give us is freedom—not freedom from suffering, sickness, and death, but freedom that we experience in suffering, in sickness, and in the face of death.
Read both meanings in their context here.
