Overview

Humanity still experiences Good Friday. Mental and physical illness, poverty and starvation, wars and systemic violence of all kinds overwhelm individuals, communities, entire nations. Each of us has a personal story of suffering. At times we cry out to God with the Psalmist: You plunged me into the bottom of the pit, into the darkness of the abyss. We search for comfort, light and meaning. From Chapter One, The Dark Abyss of Suffering

How can we reconcile the certainty of suffering in human life with our belief in a loving God? Into the Abyss of Suffering: A Catholic View offers a perspective that consoles and satisfies. Rooted in our faith, it views our human suffering through the lens of Jesus human and divine suffering and reassures us that we are loved even in and through our pain.
