On Cross and Suffering

The theme of suffering has always been an interesting question, and will always be, I think. Why do we suffer—is an eternal search of humankind. And it remains as mystery.

The following videos address exactly this very subject, in Christian view. The first is on our cross, the second is about suffering, and the third is the power of cross in relation to human suffering.

It’s always interesting to hear someone speaks on this universal topic yet still a mystery among us.

The first one is on Our Cross.

Bishop Fulton Sheen on Our Cross

The following is on Suffering:

Though the above videos are old ones, the message is always relevant, even for today. So spend your time to listen and to reflect. Your time will not be wasted. Even if so, it would be wasted for good. 😃

In the middle of this coronavirus pandemic, it’s wise to reflect on this very aspect of our life. We all suffer to some degree, so why not go deep about it, right?

If you will, go ahead and waste your time watching another video, from another bishop, on the power of the cross, of how Jesus Christ actually dealing with all kinds of our humanly suffering on the cross, and how through that, He redeems our sins.

Here’s the video:

Hope you enjoyed the videos and really reflect on your day to day lives. May God speak to you in the middle of your own suffering, and I wish you all the best. 😊
