Thank you to all who pray for me, and help me get through my weak periods, who do not leave me alone in my misery, but lift me up to the Lord. I am blessed. I am grateful. My sister sent me this lovely Divine Mercy prayer.
in whom mercy is endless
and the treasury of compassion
look kindly upon us
and increase Your mercy in us,
that in difficult moments
we might not despair
nor become despondent,
but with great confidence
submit ourselves to Your holy will,
which is Love and Mercy itself.
A helpful resource that addresses the problem of suffering is CS Lewis' The Problem of Pain.
If you have other books you can recommend, I would greatly appreciate it.
