The paschal mystery is at the heart of the mystery of life. The work of Jesus is to suffer so that He can save. This is a mystery to be pondered and embraced. As Christians, do we see the saving work of Jesus as part of our destiny? How do we suffer? Do we bind our suffering to that of Jesus so that it can save?

O gracious God, help me to embrace the paschal mystery. As I accept the value of the suffering of Jesus, may I see the salvific potential of my own.
