Keeping Our Bearings in Times of Suffering
How can we provide comfort, consoling, and reassurance to those who are suffering? What can we say that will provide lasting help to those facing adversity?

He answers such questions as "Why is suffering inevitable?" "What does it mean to be 'faithful in tribulation'?" "What good does it do me to suffer?" "How might I react to the suffering of others?"
