Why Must I Suffer?

A Book of Light and Consolation 

by Father F. J. Remler, CM
96 pp. paperback

It would be hard to find a book like Father Remler’s that so wonderfully explains the value of penance in the light of the patient and enduring acceptance of the cross. Outside of grace, the author writes, our sins cast no shadow. They are committed in the darkness in which we chose to wallow, a darkness that will drag us into the pit of hell. Stepping out of that darkness into the light of grace, we can come back to God Who is drawing us to Him through a sincere confession. Once the guilt of our sins has been remitted, however, their effects remain. This is the shadow that follows us through life, because only if we are in the light of faith, living in hope and charity, can we truly see the sad effects of our sins, our shadow. The higher the light of Christ is in our lives and the more directly we let it shine upon us by our embrace of suffering, the more the shadow of past transgressions is reduced. Our goal, the will of God, is that this shadow disappear altogether. This magnificent analysis of suffering, as to its cause, its value, and its ultimate effect (i.e., conformity to Christ, the Man of Sorrows) will give us more strength not only to bear our own cross but also to willingly share in the suffering Jesus endured for all men our accepting, as joyful victims, of crosses vicariously borne for sinners within our own family, for our wayward friends, for the crimes of our nation, and for those dear to us who are languishing in purgatory.
