The Mystery and Meaning of Suffering
Presented by Monsignor Peter Bui
No one is exempt from suffering, not even Our Lord Jesus Christ. Because suffering is so common yet so difficult to understand and talk about, it is easy to rely on platitudes such as “It’s all part of God’s plan” to explain away its existence. However, even the best rational explanations of why suffering exists fall short. Suffering is a mystery and there will never be an adequate explanation to the problem of suffering as we journey through this earthly life. We will explore Scripture as the Word of God and Church teaching to help us enter God’s perspective on human suffering and how suffering has a crucial role in our redemption and our strive for holiness.
