Being protected from the hardships of life can be a good thing, especially for children, but what happens when suffering becomes inevitable? If we choose to live an authentic Christian life, we need an “antifragile” faith that, not only endures, but is strengthened by the suffering and hardships that will come. Fr. Mike encourages us to face adversity with joy, knowing that our faith will become more resilient as a result.
