Show Notes

In this episode of The Cordial Catholic, I'm joined by Father Jeffrey Kirby, STD to unpack the Catholic view of evil and suffering. We dig deeply into a topic that is maybe the biggest struggle for believers – and a barriers for those who don't believe: suffering.

With Father Kirby's help and expertise, we discuss where suffering comes from, why we suffer, why God allows certain sufferings to take place, and how we should respond as Catholics, in a long tradition of suffering – and growing spiritually!

It's an incredible conversation.

For more from Father Kirby visit his website and be sure to check out Manual for Suffering from Tan Books.
