FOCUS National Chaplain Fr. Gabriel Gillen joins Jessica to talk about suffering and the tremendous power it has when “offered up.” Fr. Gabriel and Jess discuss:

  • The most common questions people ask when they are suffering, such as, “Is my suffering my fault?” “Is God punishing me for my sin?” “If God is good, why isn’t He putting an end to my suffering?”
  • The most important question to ask when you are suffering: “What should I do with my suffering?”
  • Fr. Gabriel tells the story of a young boy who was healed of a snakebite after receiving a blood transfusion from a man who had built up immunities to snakebites. He compares this to the healing power redemptive suffering can have for others when it is offered up.
  • Fr. Gabriel gives advice on how to offer up your sufferings
