In the universality of His Love and His pity, Christ shared the sorrow and pain of every human being through the long story of mankind:  He knew in his own heart every cry of pain and agony that had ever risen or should ever rise from the valley of human tears.  But there is more than that.  St. Paul tells us He was made sin for our sake: and we are to understand, not indeed that He became a sinner, but that He knew in his heart the ultimate torment of the sinner; the agony of emptiness and horror that is final separation from God.

God so loved the world that he empied Himself of His Divine Nature and died on the cross so mankind could be saved.
"My Soul is Sorrowful even unto death......Not My will but Thine be Done....
