CNA Staff, Nov 4, 2020 / 07:29 pm (CNA).- Archbishop Alexander Sample of Portland discussed the meaning of suffering – and how Catholics should respond to it – in a recent video reflection.
“We’ve been suffering through this pandemic. We’re suffering through these terrible divisions in our country and the remnants of evils, such as racism [and] social unrest. Here in Oregon, we’ve had these terrible wildfires,” he said October 23 on his weekly video program, Chapel Chat.
“Even though we know suffering is always there, it’s a little bit in our face right now more so perhaps than in the usual course of things. It’s important for a Christian to understand the meaning of suffering.”
