All of us have known suffering in our lives—physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually. Many times such suffering has almost everwhelmed us. As a result, we try to avoid it at all costs and, when we can't, we often grit our teeth and try to get through it as quickly as possible.
In this booklet, Sr Ann Shields opens a doorway to the gift and fruit of suffering. Through Scripture, the writings of John Paul II, the testimonies of the saints and personal stories, she shows us a map of the treasures to be found in the suffering we endure.
To follow the map is to find intimacy with Christ. The result can be a new hope and confidence in the love of God for each of us.
