    What book of Fulton Sheen’s is the meditation on pain taken from?

    Thank you. Perfect for the station of Cosmas and Damian.

    Fr. Z reading Fulton Sheen reading CS Lewis – how wonderful!

    I highly recommend Lewis’s “The Problem of Pain” (which I believe is where that quotation about “God’s megaphone” is from) to anyone who hasn’t read it. Worth reading together with his later “A Grief Observed”, a very poignant and personal account of his struggle to accept his own theories of suffering and keep his faith following the death of his wife from bone cancer (a horribly painful disease).

    For the very holy, and for those of us who should know better, pain can be a megaphone order to pray and sacrifice for others.
