Series 12, Episode 6: Sin, Suffering, and the Scourging
Today’s Daily Decade, for the Feast of St. Cunegundis of Luxembourg, offers prayers for Ilya, a Russian tanker known to a listener, who fell in battle in the Ukraine. We offer for him the Latin Requiem prayers.
Today’s reflection considers the desperate need we all seem to have for hope, and how hopeless and absurd the world can seem when our suffering lacks the meaning that only Christ can give it – and, in turn, why the scourging, by which Christ takes upon himself all the sins of the flesh, gives meaning to our suffering in a special way, and is a source for us of both eternal as well as mundane Hope.
God love you!
