Diseases — „Divine Philosophy”; Suffering — „Divine Pedagogy”

1 September 2012

Human experience proves that the sorrows, sufferings, pains and diseases are common facts of life and the man must prepare himself to confront them. Having their ultimate cause in original sin, amplified by personal sins, the dramatic and painful trials of life are rooted in man's thirst to buy more and more intense pleasure and joy. Therefore pain, disease and suffering are not proofs of God’sanger or punishment, rather signs of His merciful love for man, attempts to return him from the ways of sin and spiritual death to the true happiness, not only in this world, but also in the eternal life.
