Like Joseph Bernardin, people with illness or disability first need to resolve the ever-important 'Why?' question. Like Julian of Norwich, they need to find the spiritual meaning in living with illness. Also, they need to know the profound spiritual power of the redemptive aspect of suffering as Caryll Houselander so often stressed.
from the Introduction
Come find comfort in your time of need with 11 inspiring and faith-filled spiritual companions. These holy men and women, each from a different background and time period, suffered illness or disability, and through prayer found acceptance, strength and hope. Author Janice McGrane gives a biographical sketch of each spiritual companion and then shares how each companion faced adversity in physical, mental and emotional pain.
As you journey through your own painor walk a difficult path with a loved oneyou will want to look to these spiritual companions and their stories to find your own meaning in suffering."
