Finding Consolation in Life's Trials

Find Consolation and Hope

Is someone you love suffering? Are you suffering? Do you know what to say to a loved with cancer or addiction? Or how to handle your own pain, whether phsyical or emotional?

We all suffer—it’s part of being human. But do you know how to bring hope and consolation to your loved ones? Or how to turn your own suffering into opportunities to grow in holiness?

The Meaning of Suffering, provides crucial answers to these questions and spiritual support in times of suffering. You'll also learn why we suffer in the first place. And why a loving and merciful God allows us to suffer. Christ holds the answers...

Look to Jesus

Suffering is universal. Everyone experiences pain, illness, grief, loss. In those moments, it can be difficult to turn our eyes toward Jesus, or to find the right words or actions to console a loved one. But God gives us a great gift: His own loving example. Jesus suffered for us on the cross, offering an eternal sacrifice for our sins, and He invites us to unite our suffering with His.

Turn Suffering into Holiness

Easier said than done. That’s why, in the Meaning of Suffering presented by Good Catholic, we’ll unlock the teachings of the Church, the examples of the saints, and the life of Christ to help you not only make sense out of suffering, but use it to grow closer to Our Lord.

In this series you will:

  • See how suffering only makes sense in light of Christ’s suffering…and why that should bring us great joy and consolation (Day 2)
  • Discover why Jesus’ death on the cross freed us from sin but not from suffering (Day 6)
  • Learn how to handle physical, mental, and spiritual suffering, and help you or your loved ones prayerfully process grief and loss (Days 8-11)
  • Turn to the great mercy of God, who brings grace and good even out of our most difficult trials (Day 15)
  • Find hope and consolation—even salvation—in suffering (Day 17)
  • Learn practical tips about how to suffer well through the example of the saints

Suffering happens to all of us—but suffering is not meaningless. Discover how it is an opportunity to unite yourself to Christ.
