Good Friday, a day of holding suffering. As a child I would suffer when punished for my bad attitude or behavior. I find it interesting looking back that the scripture I was asked to reflect on was “I am the way, and the truth, and the life.” (John 14:6). Ok, be kind, helpful, forgive and love. A good first step, but I always wondered about the “How To.” Today’s reading gives insight to the “How To.” Jesus in his suffering learned obedience, to listen deeply. Suffering is hard. The personal denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance is overwhelming. Jesus leads by example. In his suffering Jesus continued to listen to the will of God and was transformed. Joan Chittister explains that “Our task is to be obedient all our lives to the Will of God [which is Love] for the world.” When we learn to listen with dignity to one another we will transform the world!
