Everyone goes through some amount of suffering and sometimes it can be unbearable. As Catholics, we might recall the suffering that Christ endured on the Cross for us, but what does that mean in relation to our suffering and how can the love and suffering of Christ help to make sense of our present pain? Author Jeff Cavins stops by the CE Podcast to discuss ways we can make sense of our suffering when we look at the Cross. We also discuss the ways the saints and ancient philosophers discussed happiness and suffering as well as what you can do to help your friends and neighbors who are undergoing great pain and suffering.
