Sharing the Sufferings of Christ NUNBLOG - May 27, 2016 Caravaggio's Crucifixion of St Peter First Pope walked the talk. I was struck by today's first reading from the First Letter of Peter. The first Pope takes for granted (and expects his readers to, as well) that Christian life involves an intimate sharing in the sufferings of Christ--as well as the confidence that this is the prelude to sharing in his glory. Passages from other parts of the New Testament kept popping into my head: "Did not the Christ have to suffer and so ...http://romans8v29.blogspot.com/2016/05/sharing-sufferings-of-christ.html

When I read my letter there was a scripture passage from the prophet Isaiah inserted into the body of it. This is what the prophet Isaiah had to say to me on that memorable day.
