Father Mike Schmitz “The Real Answer to Why God Allows Suffering” Video

In the video “The Real Answer to Why God Allows Suffering” by Father Mike Schmitz he explains that suffering has power and a meaning behind it because God is behind everything. Father Mike goes into detail about how there are two types of evil in the world; Physical evil(death) and Moral Evil(human actions). One of the things that really stood out to me was when Father Mike said something along the lines of “God created the world good but we broke it and brought evil into it, but he allows us to do and be evil so we have freedom.” Throughout the whole video many points and short explanations were thrown at us as reason to gain an understanding of why God allows suffering in people who don’t deserve it. We have the freedom and ability to choose good but we also have that ability to choose evil. Everyones suffering matters because we have feelings and awareness, and it is okay and normal to suffer at times throughout your life because evil will surprise you at unexpected times gracing you with the presence of grief. In my opinion we can take away from the video the fact that suffering is all around us, even the body of Christ feels pain because there are things that are in pain and suffering around it, we can also understand that all suffering is important and nothing given to God is or ever will be wasted.
