The sufferings of Our Lord are the sufferings of a divine Person, and this is why they have infinite value.  It is also true, however, that only His human nature could suffer (His divine nature cannot suffer because it is not subject to change).  From the Eleventh Council of Toledo, we read:

"In this form of assumed human nature we believe according to the truth of the Gospels that He was conceived without sin, born without sin, and died without sin, who alone for us became sin [2 Cor. 5:21], that is, a sacrifice for our sin.  And yet He endured His passion without detriment to His divinity, for our sins, and condemned to death and to the cross, He accepted the true death of the body; also on the third day, restored by His own power, He arose from the grave" (Exposition of Faith against the Pricillianists, A.D. 675: Denz. 286 - My emphasis).

All that Our Lord did, however, may be said to have been done of a divine Person.  The hypostatic union, besides giving His suffering infinite value (because He's God), also allowed Him to suffer on behalf of mankind (for He was and is truly man).
