What can we do to understand and give comfort in the face of human suffering?
Blessed Mother Teresa reminds us, “You and I, we are the Church, no? We have to share with our people. Suffering today is because people are hoarding, not giving, not sharing. Jesus made it very clear. Whatever you do to the least of my brethren, you do it to me. Give a glass of water, you give it to me. Receive a little child, you receive me.” (Read more of Mother Teresa’s words here.)
This article by Dr. Peter Kreeft helps explain God’s answer to human suffering.
May we never forget to pray and help those most in need, who may be suffering materially or spiritually.
