At the same time, the very word “gives” “gave” indicates slvifici this liberation must be achieved by the only-begotten Son through his own suffering.

Considering the world of suffering in its personal and at the same time collective meaning, one cannot fail to notice the fact that this world, at some periods of time and in some eras of human existence, as it were becomes particularly concentrated.


And so the Church sees in all Christ’s suffering brothers and sisters as it were a multiple subject of his supernatural power.
