Saint Francis and Suffering

Might the authority of those who suffer bring the diverse cultural and social worlds together? —Johann Baptist Metz I believe this profound question about suffering from a modern German theologian succinctly and precisely expresses the religious breakthrough that Christ has offered humanity.
