Catholics and Orthodox believe that when one is in a state of grace, and one unites ones works or suffering with the Redemtive work of Jesus on the Cross, they become sources of Supernatural Grace. Less the act itself, than the fact that the acts, or offering of one’s suffering in unity with Christ are elevated by Christ, and a source of merit for our souls. Protestant sects differ on the purpose and the benefits of suffering.
