Suffering is an inescapable mystery that challenges everyone — especially the innocent. Theologians and philosophers have wrestled with the question since the dawn of time. For those who believe in a loving God, this question becomes all the more vexing and can be a stumbling block for many.
Dr. Paul Chaloux has written the book, Why All People Suffer: How a Loving God Uses Suffering to Perfect Us. With the words and inspiration of the catechism and popes, Professor Chaloux presents the Catholic view of suffering and how our response to it can help sanctify us.
In today’s interview, Dr. Chaloux shares with us his own experience of suffering, as well as his insight gleaned from the Catechism of the Catholic Church and many saints, popes, and theologians.
