Hi everyone…hoping for some help with this…I understand the concept of “offering up” our own suffering…but Im struggling a bit with how we are given the “right” to offer up our Lords suffering…who are we, to make that choice?
So when we say “I offer up the body and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ”…or, in the Holy Wounds chaplet we say “Eternal father, I offer you the wounds of our Lord Jesus Christ, to heal the wounds of our souls”…its so beautiful and powerful to me…but I cant help thinking who on earth am “I” to offer up our Lords suffering??? A sinner, like me!
I think I might be missing some of the theology here. I am in love with the whole idea of “offering up” but would like to understand better.
