Why Is Life So Full of Suffering?

Friends, the book of Job is one of the most profound and most challenging books in the entire Bible. In today’s reading, we see that God does not hand-wave away Job’s suffering.

We must not narrow our focus on our pain; we must rather open ourselves to ever greater trust.

Joy for the Brokenhearted

Friends, today is Gaudete Sunday. It is a command to rejoice, for Jesus has made us rich through his entrance into poverty. We are reminded both by Pope Francis and the Gospel reading that we must reach out to those on the periphery, suffering from poverty—whether economic, political, or existential—just as Christ has done for us.
