Sweet Cross: A Marian Guide to Suffering

October 12, 2021 @ 2:00 pm 2:30 pm EDT

Free

As Christians, we know we have not been promised an easy, carefree life. And yet we resist suffering at every turn, despite Jesus’ clear and direct conditions if we want to be his disciples: “Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me” (Mt 16:24).

The truth is most of us find the cross bitter. We’d rather not have to carry it, and we wonder why God demands it of us. In Sweet Cross: A Marian Guide to Suffering, Laura Phelps reveals not only why suffering is a necessary part of our Christian life, but how we can learn to carry our cross without fear or complaint — and even to find that it is sweet. The secret is Mary.

Join us as Laura Mary Phelps talks about her new book and how Mary teaches us to be patient in our pain and strong in our suffering.
