We Must Suffer and Die

Suffering and death ... are a part of human existence, and it is futile, not to say misleading, to try to hide them or ignore them. On the contrary, people must be helped to understand their profound mystery in all its harsh reality. Even pain and suffering have meaning and value when they are experienced in close connection with love received and given.

St. John Paul and Blessed Chiara, pray for us.
