Good Friday – Does suffering have meaning?

One of the problems that I have faced when it comes to talking about suffering is this! When someone asks they would like to know the answer in approximately one minute or less. I personally do not think it is possible to answer the question in a minute or less. The next problem is phrasing ourselves properly. When I was playing squash and someone from the team was diagnosed with cancer, I was asked about it and yet, I wasn’t given much of an opportunity to respond. This morning I want to look at the question, knowing that I will only scratch the surface of the topic.
