Publisher's Summary

With secular reasoning, there is nothing good about suffering. Suffering is to be avoided at all cost. The thought is that there is no point to suffering means, that it is reasonable to even kill oneself instead of enduring pain.

Fortunately, Catholic Christians have a different attitude toward pain, even if it is part of the natural dying process. This little booklet is an attempt to illuminate the Catholic Christian way of facing pain and transform it into a useful and productive time in life. It is a frank discussion. If you have not evolved in your relationship with Jesus, you may find this discussion hard to understand or even offensive. Still, if you listen and then pray you will understand. With understanding may come peace and joy.

Suffering is a Good Thing

Would recommend. It’s short and sweet. Was a little worried about the beginning but after getting into it more, it made me smile and cry. We are here to suffer like our Lord did for us.

As soon as you start listening, increase the speed.

The narrator was part snail. Going to 1.25 x helped. I think the content is a worthwhile reminder.
