What Does it Mean to Suffer with Christ?

Today, Fr. Josh tackles the question, “What does it mean to suffer with Christ?” Sometimes we wonder how our suffering can have meaning and purpose. We can be left confused as to why we are struggling, whether with physical sickness or mental illness and how we can offer those difficulties up to God the Father as Christ does on the cross.

Ask Fr. Josh is the question and answer show to help you navigate life when our Catholic Faith doesn’t give an easy “fill-in-the blank” answer. In each video, Father addresses one question from three different perspectives: your relationship with God, your relationship with the Church, and your relationship with others. For more Fr.

Now, Fr. Josh is the Vocations Director of the Diocese of Baton Rouge in Louisiana. He is a presenter in four of Ascension’s programs: Altaration, YOU: Life, Love, and the Theology of the Body, The 99, and Connected: Catholic Social Teaching for This Generation, as well as the author of Broken and Blessed: An Invitation to My Generation, Pocket Guide to Adoration, and co-author of Pocket Guide to Reconciliation.
