Mother Angelica on Suffering and Burnout
From the spiritual writings and reflections of Mother Angelica comes this lucid and life-transforming book for anyone who struggles with suffering, or finds difficulty in persevering in your daily responsibilities.
Mother Angelica provides consolation and advice that only a spiritual mother can provide, helping you to understand the purpose of suffering, how it can be redemptive, and when to know you’re allowing your suffering to go to waste.
You’ll also learn about dryness in prayer and how it can be a gift, as well as how to respond to what she calls “spiritual hangovers.”
You’ll learn how Christ is closest to you when He is silent, and how His silence can be one of the most powerful and purifying elements of the spiritual life.
Finally, Mother Angelica shows you that what Jesus needs most from you is gratitude, trust, and, indeed, weakness. Follow the advice Mother Angelica offers in these pages, and you’ll soon find yourself consoled and reawakened to the generous grace God is daily offering to you.
The greatest test of your faith won't come from Bible-quoting Protestants or polite young Mormons on bicycles! No, your greatest test will be whether you will trust God when you suffer, or whether you will, in the words of Job's wife, "curse God and die."
In Suffering: The Cross of Christ and Its Meaning for You, Dom Hubert van Zeller helps you prepare now for all your sufferings by enabling you to see them with the eyes of the Spirit.
Van Zeller, the wise author of Holiness for Housewives, maintains that you can understand the mystery of suffering only by means of the Passion of Christ. In this book, he explores the fourteen Stations of the Cross, plumbing the inner meanings of each in order to reveal why there has to be pain, and what you should do (and should not do) about it.
In his explorations of the Stations, van Zeller finds a great deal to help you in dark times. He reminds you that suffering, properly understood, cannot and should not extinguish happiness, and shows you how to accept your crosses with love. He reveals how you can learn from Christ Himself to turn your failures into victories, and to alleviate others' suffering by imitating Mary's compassion.
Above all, van Zeller shows you that suffering has a purpose, and he uses Christ's Passion to sharpen your vision of life's meaning. With help from this perceptive book, you'll learn how not to grow disheartened or to give in to discouragement, but to see your crosses for what they are, and to bear them with perseverance.
Make your sufferings a path to salvation as Dom van Zeller shows you:
