Facing Adversity with Grace - Lessons from the Saints
By Woodeene Koenig-Bricker. Whenever I am faced with a difficulty in my life, I turn my eyes to Heaven and implore the help of my brothers and sisters, the saints. The saints are excellent role models in how to deal with pain and suffering, because they’ve been there. Facing Adversity with Grace takes you on a journey through the lives of some of my favorite saints. You will see how, through the grace of God, various saints dealt with suffering: Padre Pio and physical pain, Mother Teresa and mental suffering, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton and financial stress, St. John Paul II and old age, and more. Each chapter also adds questions for reflection and a beautiful prayer for that particular adversity. Sharing in the stories of these saints will strengthen you and help you persevere in life until you join them in Heaven. Softcover,164 pages.
