Saint Pope John Paul II’s extensive teaching on the purpose and value of human suffering

This is one of the most complete and extensive treatments of the subject of suffering, ever written.

The context is a universal one, benefitting from the Light of Christ, his Church and the long experience of the entire Judeo-Christian faith tradition.

It’s not particularly short, nor is it easy to understand, so it may require some serious study.

The bottom line: If you’re human, you suffer, so you might as well try to make sense out of it; if not for yourself, then for others.
