What Is Bitterness, We Have Made Tolerable

We have made the bitterness of the cross, the revelation of God in the cross of Jesus Christ, tolerable to ourselves by learning to understand it as a necessity for the process of salvation.

– Jurgan Moltman, The Crucified Christ

as quoted by Brennan Manning, The Ragamuffin Gospel, copyright 1990, 2000, page 106
