Through scripture, and examples of life, Fr. Rolheiser gives new understanding and encouragement in how we can give our lives to the world and to also give our death to the world. When we think of passion, we think of Christ’s physical suffering and death, but in Agony in the Garden, the Gospels do not emphasize Jesus’ physical sufferings. The Gospel writers want us to understand Jesus the Lover who undergoes moral and emotional suffering without resentment or bitterness. Fr. Rolheiser explains that God’s strength comes when we are exhausted and open to being transformed. A profound and moving reflection, in two parts Part 1- 39:23, Part 2 – 49:05.
