    Book summary:

    Published on February 11, 1984, Salvifici Doloris addresses the question of why God allows suffering. In this apostolic letter, Pope John Paul II reflects on the origins of suffering, explores the different types of suffering we endure, examines our quest to discover its meaning and purpose, and explains how we are to respond to suffering. He links our personal experiences with suffering to the mystery of humanity, of God, and to the redemption brought by Christ's suffering.

    This expanded anniversary edition offers the complete text of the letter, along with thought-provoking commentary by Myles N. Sheehan, SJ, MD. As a priest and a physician who was trained in geriatrics and specialized in palliative care, Dr. Sheehan approaches the topic of suffering from firsthand experience and extends his warm compassion to readers. This edition incorporates relevant biographical elements of John Paul II's life and of the respective historical period. It also makes the content of the papal document more accessible and places it in the context of recent world events, including September 11th, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and gun violence incidents in schools and public places across the nation. Each of the eight sections of the original document contains insightful questions suited for individual or group use, applicable prayers, and ideas for meaningful action, inviting readers to personally respond to the mystery of suffering.

    Whether you are revisiting or introducing yourself to this letter, it will help you work through the question that we all ask ourselves at some point in our lives: "Why suffering?" It is only natural to wonder why a person is the target for some sort of suffering-a chronic illness, the loss of a loved one, depression, a natural disaster, an act of violence, financial crisis...the list could go on.

    Book summary:

    Commemorate the 25th anniversary of On the Dignity and Vocation of Women by Pope John Paul II.

    Published on August 15, 1988, Mulieris Dignitatem explores the role and value of women in relation to the Church, the family, and society. In this apostolic letter, Pope John Paul II promotes a vision of complementarity, equality, and communion between man and woman. Within this framework, he stresses the importance of a woman's capacity to love and her femininity-and in particular, sensitivity to others. He also explains the physical and spiritual dimensions of marriage, virginity, and motherhood. Citing women from the Gospels, female saints, and Christian women who have made significant contributions to society, he expresses the Church's reverence for women. Special focus is placed on the Blessed Virgin Mary, the archetype of woman and the "New Eve."

    This expanded Anniversary Edition offers the complete text of the letter, along with thought-provoking commentary by Genevieve Kineke, who addressed the Vatican Congress marking the 20th anniversary of the document in 2008. With her conversational style, she makes the content of the papal document more accessible and offers contemporary insights that respond to the urgent questions raised in recent decades about the feminine vocation. Insightful questions suited for individual or group use, applicable prayers, and ideas for meaningful action engage you in your reading experience.

    From workplace equality, to reproductive rights, to domestic abuse, women's issues are highlighted in societies worldwide, especially in recent years with the new wave of feminist movements. Whether you are revisiting or introducing yourself to this letter, this anniversary edition provides a framework from which you can explore current women's issues from a Catholic perspective.
