knowinggod1

“On the cross Jesus lost all the good that he has before: all sense of his Father’s presence and love, all sense of physical, mental and spiritual well being, all enjoyment of God and of created things, all ease and solace of friendship were taken from him, and in their place was nothing but loneliness, pain, a killing sense of human malice and callousness, and a horror of great spiritual darkness.”
