WHEN YOU SUFFER
Biblical Keys for Hope and Understanding
Author: Jeff Cavins
Softcover - 160pp To be human is to sufferphysically, emotionally, and spiritually. In addition to our own suffering, we also encounter the suffering of those around us. While the world of medicine attempts to relieve suffering and the media tries to sell us on a life without pain, only the Church offers the perspective that suffering has meaning. St. John Paul II said that suffering without meaning can lead to despair, but if we can attach meaning to our suffering, we are capable of going through anything. This Catholic book is therefore a refreshing look at the mystery of pain and suffering and how to find meaning and even joy in the midst of it. The author discusses why we suffer and how our suffering can draw us closer to God. He explains that suffering is the greatest opportunity to love as Christ loves and how, by offering up our suffering, we join in the Christs mission to redeem the world.
