The Christian response to the problem of evil and suffering began with the cross of Christ. Our answer is inseparable from the cross-from Jesus' own encounter with evil and his triumph over it. In this light, Fr. Benedict recalls some of our most frequently encountered sorrows and griefs: the failure of friends, financial and personal insecurity, the failure of some in the Church, our own inconsistent behaviors and weaknesses, and the death of loved ones. As we examine these painful experiences, he shows that we can find solutions in the Gospel and in the lives of saints, heroes, and very brave ordinary people.
"Many guides have been written for people struggling with
the mystery of evil. But each generation, each age has its
own dark background in front of which the struggle to keep
going must be worked out. In every age, men ask 'how am I
going to go on to arise from darkness?' It is that which my
book will address."
ùFr. Benedict Groeschel, CFR
