The Conspirators

"Having Himself suffered the trial, Jesus can better help those who are being tried. Sin is conquered by the love, 'strong as death,' of Jesus for His Father and for us. It was like a conspiracy of merciful love between the Father and the Son. It is false to think that the Father was harsh in His treatment of the Son--it is even inconceivable. No, Their common plan was to reunite us to Themselves in the 'blood of the covenant'." ( Father Jean C. J. d'Elbee. I Believe in Love, 217.) (empasis mine)
