Pope John Paul the Great: Witness to Christ
"Suffering is, in fact, a vocation; it is a calling to accept the burden of pain in order to transform it into a sacrifice of purification and of reconciliation offered to the Father in Christ and with Christ, for one's own salvation and that of others."
Pope John Paul II, Insegnamenti, 5/6/83
"In order to hope for salvation from God, man must stop beneath Christ's Cross."
Pope John Paul II, Crossing the Threshold of Hope, p. 68
