The passion of Passion Week

Something our pastor said in church yesterday threw into high relief what we mean by “Passion Week.” It isn’t about our passion. It’s about Christ’s passion. That is to say, His feeling and His suffering, His zeal to accomplish our salvation, His passion for us!

    “Passion” comes from the Latin for “to suffer.” Like when we feel “compassion,” we suffer with someone else. Christ suffered for us. I wonder how the word passion got wrapped up in romantic love?

    Deep passion is more than emotion, even when it’s associated with romantic love. We’ve just denigrated the meaning of the word.
    What do you suppose the French mean by ‘la petite morte’?
