One of the main reasons for the sufferings was the vision of infidelity, not only of the chosen people, but of all those who in future centuries would lead the Church founded by Our Lord on Calvary.
Quae utilitas in sanguine meo? ( Ps 29,10) This atrocious question penetrated His heart, and must penetrate ours, like a sharp sword.
