Item description for John Paul II and the Meaning of Suffering: Lessons from a Spiritual Master by Robert G. Schroeder...
Overview The spiritual wisdom of the modern world's most beloved Pope and the rich theology articulated in his apostolic letter, "Salvifici Doloris," are applied to the most pressing challenge of faith--the problem of suffering.
Publishers Description "Why does a loving God allow us to suffer? Did we do something to deserve our suffering? Does our pain serve any purpose in God's plan?"
Suffering doesn't work like we think it should, striking down the wicked and sparing the righteous. And none of us, regardless of our age, I.Q., religion, or wealth, can avoid its sting.
Now, for the first time, the spiritual wisdom of the modern world's most beloved Pope -- and the rich theology of suffering articulated in his apostolic letter, "Salvifici Doloris" -- is applied to the most pressing challenge of faith -- the problem of suffering.
The world witnessed the dignity and grace that characterized his exterior dealings with pain, now let the Holy Father's words teach you about the interior aspects of suffering: how it can be your own vocation within God's plan of salvation.

Reviews - What do customers think about John Paul II and the Meaning of Suffering: Lessons from a Spiritual Master?
Good information but not as in depth as I would like Jul 18, 2008
Easy reading and great information. The author shares his experience with lifes suffering accompanied by PJPII's Salvific Daloris. I would have liked more of the Popes words and less of the author. It does give some basic insight to Christian suffering. Its a good beginning to understanding why people suffer backed up with words of Jesus and church doctrine.
JOHN PAUL II AND THE MEANING OF SUFFERING:LESSONS FROM A SPIRITUAL MASTER May 8, 2008
If you are a "fan" of John Paul the Great as I am, you must have this treasure! If you are a Christian rooted in Scriptue that wants to put together the topic of Christianity and the mystery of suffering in our spiritual walk, you must add this book to your collection. If you are suffering in any way, physical, emotional or spiritual, and feel angry at God, and seek consolation, strength and freedom from anger, the writings and witness of this holy man will empower you to embrace this cross and move toward spiritual heights. I can't think of anyone who would not greatly benefit from this book, as we all have suffering invade our life at some time or we know of someone struggling and in pain of whatever kind. This is also a great book for clergy and caregivers of those who suffer.
