The Christian Meaning of Suffering, Fr. James Sullivan, O.P.

Jesus invited his disciples, "Take up your cross, and follow me," yet he always healed the sick and comforted the sorrowing. The presence of suffering can be a stumbling block in our spiritual journey, even a challenge to our faith. Paradoxically, it can also be an opportunity for growth in holiness, one that many of the saints made use of. Fr. James Sullivan, O.P., Novice Master for the Eastern Province Dominicans, presented this lecture, "The Christian Meaning of Suffering," on Sunday, March 23, 2014, at Mt. de Sales Academy, Catonsville, MD.
