20. Why did Christ suffer and die?

PAROCHIAL SCHOOL, DANBURY, CONNECTICUT, 1950



Why did Christ suffer and die?
Christ suffered and died for our sins.

Did Christ suffer and die as God or as man?
Christ suffered and died as man; and, as God, His sufferings were of infinite value.
 
What lessons do we learn from the sufferings and death of Christ?
From the sufferings and death of Christ we learn the great evil of sin, the hatred God bears to it, and the necessity of satisfying for it.

Why should we have great devotion to the Passion of Christ?
We should have great devotion to the Passion of Christ:
1st, To keep us ever mindful of His great love for us.
2nd, To inspire us with sorrow for sin.
3rd, To apply to our souls the graces and merits of His Passion and Death.

Prayer to God's Mother
