When we speak or preach from the "Passion of Christ," we are speaking or preaching about Christ's suffering and death on Calvary's cross for the sins of the world. Certainly, the Passion is about Jesus assuming unto Himself the sins of the world and then experiencing to the fullest degree the Father's just wrath upon that sin. It is about forgiveness and salvation graciously offered in view of the shed blood of Calvary.

This series is about all of that and more. It is also about the important and significant miracles and miraculous signs that God the Father performed to set apart His Son's death from absolutely all others. The miracles and miraculous signs performed by the heavenly Father during the Passion of His Son were performed to spread the Good News, which is centered in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ in the face of opposition. St. Paul in Ephesians 6:10-20 reminds us of the opposition with which we are faced. Proclaiming the Miracles of Lent equips us with some of the "armor" of which St. Paul wrote.
