One of the primary features of Christianity is that it accommodates the whole of the suffering of humankind, a suffering that is both moral and physical. Nonetheless the burden of suffering and salvation through suffering have often been confused together. Christ does not tell us either what or why he suffers. But he guides us in how he suffers. Closed in on oneself or open to the other: These are the two ways of living suffering, by which suffering becomes a manner of living rather just a condemnation of life.

Keywords:   causes of suffering, phenomenology of suffering, occlusion of suffering, traps, way of suffering, pain
