Authority of Those Who Have Suffered ~ MP3
In this teaching given to hospital and hospice chaplains, Richard Rohr shares his insights on pain and dying. Jesus’ ministry used all the pain images—tragedy, suffering, betrayal, and even death—to bring us to see and be with the God who completely surrounds us with love, the indwelling Presence.
This moving talk is very helpful for caregivers to family members, healthcare providers, pastors, teachers, hospital chaplains, hospice and nursing home workers, and grief counselors. Also very helpful for anyone who has suffered—and who hasn’t? Listen and find out why this is an important lesson.
Richard’s talk combines insights rich in meaning and moving poetry to open us to the eternal Gospel message of hope in this imperfect, suffering world.
