6: Ready, Set, SUFFER!


God’s Healing for Life’s Losses  by Robert W. Kellemen Ph.D: Sustaining in Suffering: Stages of Hurt–“It’s Normal to Hurt and Necessary to Grieve."

Denial: Proverbs 24:26.

Anger: 1 Cor.13:4-7, “Virtues are formed by prayer. Prayer preserves temperance. Prayer suppresses anger. Prayer prevents emotions of pride and envy. Prayer draws into the soul the Holy Spirit, and raises man to Heaven.” --Saint Ephraem of Syria.

Bargaining: Hebrews 4:16, "We must speak to God as a friend speaks to his friend, servant to his master; now asking some favor, now acknowledging our faults, and communicating to Him all that concerns us, our thoughts, our fears, our projects, our desires, and in all things seeking His counsel.” -St. Ignatius of Loyola.

Depression: Deuteronomy 31:8, “When it is all over you will not regret having suffered; rather you will regret having suffered so little, and suffered that little so badly.” St. Sebastian Valfre.

Acceptance: Philippians 3:10-11, “The more we are afflicted in this world, the greater is our assurance in the next; the more we sorrow in the present, the greater will be our joy in the future." - St. Isidore of Seville.


"It's for you, Jesus; if you want it, I want it, too.”

“There's only one thing I can do now: to offer my suffering to Jesus.”

"Through her smile, and through her eyes full of light, she showed us that death doesn't exist; only life exists.” - Dr. Antonio Delogu

"If I had to choose between walking again and going to heaven, I wouldn't hesitate. I would choose heaven."
