Questioning God When Bad Things Happen

“Is God good? Is He who He says He is?”

Fr. Mark-Mary encourages us to acknowledge that, perhaps even subconsciously, we often subject God to scrutiny in our thoughts and hearts. We find ourselves in a perpetual evaluation of his goodness and authenticity when facing daily challenges and tragic headlines.

Meet Fr. Mark-Mary

Father Mark-Mary was ordained as a Franciscan Friar of the Renewal (CFR) in 2018 and lives at a friary in the Bronx.

The mission of the CFRs is to wholeheartedly embrace Jesus through fidelity to the Church and her Sacraments. Paired with their commitment to prayer, contemplation, and study of Sacred Scripture, the CFRs serve those around them, especially the poor, in the footsteps of Christ.
