The problem of suffering has caused many to leave the Faith, but Fr. Josh Johnson uses this Jubilee Year of Mercy to show how mercy and suffering go hand in hand. Jesus was willingly betrayed, abandoned, and crucified to show that he is with us in our suffering. In receiving his divine mercy through confession, by coming to Christ in our brokenness, we join Christ and the saints in their suffering so we can share in the resurrection with them.
