This group is all about suffering and Catholic spirituality related to it. You can discuss any aspect of suffering in here. We can also talk about Redemptive Suffering or you can just ask for prayers for any suffering you or someone else is having.
Divinisation may be best described as the transformation of confused carnal humans into unwavering spiritual children of God.
The greatest aid that accomplishes divinisation, is suffering. While all sufferings serve a redemptive purpose in general, they can be categorised according to specific purpose served.
Thus, our Lord’s sufferings can be described as propitiation or expiation as they constitute the penal compensation for the sins of all humans. The immediate consequence of sin is retributive suffering that serves as deterrent. The severe prolonged tribulation that frees us from the habit of sin is purgative suffering.
Adversity caused by the Enemy to deter us from doing good, is turned by God into benevolent sanctifying suffering that grows and perfects virtue. That which is endured in the ultimate test – Baptism by Fire, is glorifying suffering.
