Frans Cronje on "Passion":

On a recent business trip to Germany I was speaking at a school about my film career when I learnt that the German word for "passion" is "leidenschaft". I found this very intriguing as the German word is much more descriptive than the English. Leidenschaft's direct translation into English would mean something like "sufferingship". In other words, being willing to suffer and die for what you believe. In Mel Gibson's film The Passion of the Christ we clearly see that Jesus had leidenschaft for people. He loved us so much that He was willing to die for us.


I have always described myself as a man of passion, but since my German visit, I have new-found respect for the true meaning of the word.


My calling, purpose, passion (leidenschaft) and profession is to tell stories with a life-changing message that can reach every family in the world. Jesus changed my life completely in June 1996 and I therefore have a passion to include aspects of God's love in the stories that I tell.
