From what I understand,
Since God is Perfect Happiness,
Jesus suffered in his humanity, not his divinity.
Since the human soul unites thoughts for comparison,
Such as Good vs. evil, Happiness vs. unhappiness,
Then, Jesus experienced joy and sorrow.
Jesus always chooses Good over evil,
Happiness over unhappiness,
And this is His glory.
His Sacred "Heart",
Identifies the unity,
Of his soul and his body.
(The heart is the center of life giving blood, and a symbol of love.
The soul is the body's principle of life.)
"For their sake, I consecrate myself (to the Father through the sacrifice of the Cross) that they also may be consecrated in the truth" (Jn 17:19)."
Consecration to God,
Is entrusting oneself,
(Body and soul) to Jesus.
As Jesus did to the Father.
"Mother of all individuals and peoples, you know all their sufferings and hopes. In your motherly heart you feel all the struggles between good and evil, between light and darkness, that convulse the world: accept the plea which we make in the Holy Spirit directly to your heart, and embrace with the love of the Mother and Handmaid of the Lord those who most await this embrace, and also those whose act of entrustment you too await in a particular way. Take under your motherly protection the whole human family, which with affectionate love we entrust to you, O Mother. May there dawn for everyone the time of peace and freedom, the time of truth, of justice and of hope."
Pope John Paul II
So we are consecrated,
To the Sacred Heart of Jesus,
Through The Immaculate Heart of Mary
(The Second Eve, the mother of all people.)
