Please fast and pray every Thursday for the renewal of the Catholic Church in America. Please note: The Cybersociety will fast on Fridays beginning January 2013, in accordance with ancient custom.

Passio Christi, conforta me.
Passion of Christ, strengthen me.
 
We see the word is "conforta." Perhaps we would better translate it as "form," or "shape," or "fashion." When we suffer, we are formed in Christ's image. And as Thomas Merton points out, without Christ, human suffering is just misery.
