When was the last time that everything was perfect in your life? When everything was “going great,” and there were no problems, difficulties, or even minor annoyances? Never, right?
Why is this? What’s wrong with life? In this remarkable presentation, well-known Catholic author and speaker Jeff Cavins discusses just exactly what is “wrong with life” by unpacking the meaning of human suffering. He shows that suffering is a necessary consequence of a fallen world, a result of original sin. Yet Christ’s redemption of humanity on the Cross gives suffering a meaning, a purpose, a value beyond price. If we join our sufferings to those of Christ, they can become truly salvific, truly grace-filled, a path to holiness.
