Jesus' death on the cross is the central act of human existence which links every act of suffering, self-giving, or self-denial with God Himself. The author of the book, Why the Cross? is a priest who wrote on the eve of World War II, makes the connection between the Crucifixion as the horrible expiation for all sins, and the need for ordinary faithful to willingly embrace suffering in its various forms to find their way to God.

  • How we obtain happiness amidst suffering
  • Addresses the problem of pain

"Too many use their religion as medicine and not as food. They make of it a remedy for evil and not a means to good."
