He spoke of pain with such authority, of grades and kinds and degrees of pain. And all deferred to him on that subject and none interrupted his terrible testimony. He clearly spoke from experience, knowing exactly of what he was telling us, and not so much because he had inflicted pain but more because he had suffered enough of it to know, therefore, that real pain goes beyond the physical, and is ultimately a spiritual phenomena. None of us wanted to go where he was taking us, not even on a mini-tour. Still when someone told me later that he hadn't suffered enough in life to be able to understand those in crisis, I had the audacity to attempt to convince him otherwise.
