The Trinity and the Passion of Jesus

The Trinity and the Passion of Jesus
Question from on 07-29-2007:
Hello Dr. Geraghty, My eight year son, Philip asked my wife and I a question today that we weren't sure how to answer. We thought you could help. He asked if all three Persons in the Trinity felt pain when Jesus was on the cross. Thanks in advance for your help. Rob
Answer by Richard Geraghty on 07-31-2007:
Dear Philip,

On Christ felt pain. He could feel fail because he is the second person of the Blessed Trinity who has both a divine and human nature. I did not feel pain in his divine nature because that is impossible. But he did feel pain because he was the only one of the three person who possessed a human nature.

Dr. Geraghty
