It is not easy to be a Catholic, all is about suffering: fasting, mortification, sacrifices, prayers, confessions and compulsory Mass on Sundays. I used to be a comfortable Evangelic Christian. The word “passion” always brought me to think about lovers, sweet times and soap operas (especially Latino ones). Until the first time I heard the word in church, as in “the Passion of Christ”.
I discovered the beauty behind this sufferings after understanding the communion of Saints and the Holy Church. Moreover, when I understood that we form the Body of Christ as St. Paul says in the letter to Corinthians:
As a body is one though it has many parts, and all the parts of the body, though many, are one body, so also Christ. For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, slaves or free persons, and we were all given to drink of one Spirit. Now the body is not a single part, but many.
