Lent Week Six (Passion Sunday): “As Christ has undergone bodily suffering, you too should arm yourselves with the same conviction, that anyone who has undergone bodily suffering has broken with sin”  Peter 4:1.  Christ is present in Daniel, in Joel and in Betty, the family on the Trócaire Box, because of the violence, suffering, separation and aloneness that they have experienced.  Their suffering, like all human suffering, unites them to Christ on the cross in a profound way.  Today we remember them and millions like them across the world.  For more information on the Lenten campaign visit www.trocaire.org/lent or call 1850 408 408 (0800 912 1200 in NI).
