Can we, even in the depths of
disease, tell Him anything at all about suffering? In ways we cannot comprehend, our sickne sses and infirmities were borne by Him even before they were b orne by us. The very weight of our combined sins caused Him t o descend below all. We have ne ver been, nor will we be, in de pths such as He has known. Thu s His Atonement made perfect Hi s empathy and His mercy and His capacity to succor us, for whi ch we can be everlastingly gra teful as He tutors us in our tr ials. There was no ram in the t hicket at Calvary to spare Him , this Friend of Abraham and Is aac.
