The God-Man Suffers With Patience

[Christ] the god-man suffers too, with patience.  Evil and death can no longer be entirely imputed to him since he suffers and dies.  The night on Golgotha is so important in the history of man only because, in its shadows, the divinity ostensibly abandoned its traditional privilege, and lived through to the end, despair included, the agony of death.  Thus is explained the “Lama sabachtani” and the frightful doubt of Christ in agony

- Albert Camus
