Looking for Good Info

I am trying to learn more about suffering - redemptive suffering, handling suffering, offering up suffering. Anyone have some good resources for me? Books, websites, blogs, etc.

Look for books by Anne, a lay apostle that has been granted visions and visitations from Christ, Mary and some saints. The books have been approved for publication by her local bishop and are in the process of receiving the stamp of prima imprimatur and nihil obstat. The website is I believe.

I've talked a lot about this on my blog and my readers have given me lots of good tips.

First, you MUST read Fr. Walter Ciszek's book called He Leadeth Me. It's one of the best books I ever read, and really helped me understand suffering.

I also hear that Arise from Darkness by Fr. Benedict J. Groeschel is a must-read on the subject. I hope to get to it one of these days.

Also, if it's helpful, all my posts on the subject are here. None of my writing is going to be very helpful, but it's definitely worth reading through some of the comments -- I've received a lot of really good advice!

Fr. Groeschel's stuff is definitely worthy material! Pick it up!
