In this podcast, Fr. Peter Armenio, a priest of Opus Dei, explains how suffering is not a sign that should cause us to lose hope, but rather it is a sign of our sharing in the Cross of Christ, which according to St. Paul is the power of God.
We also hear how we can grow in hope by making Jesus and His Cross the center of our lives; and how that is also the best way to give hope to others.
Rev. Peter V. Armenio was ordained a priest of the Prelature of Opus Dei in 1980. He is the author of several books published by Midwest Theological Forum, including Highlights of the Catholic Faith. He also served as President of the St. Josemaria Institute from 2006 to 2012. He has been working in campus ministry for the past 30 years and also preaches recollections and gives spiritual direction in Chicago.
