The purpose of suffering

I am following a new blog, The Shepherd's Call, and this morning the writer ("caedmon") posted a quote from Ronald Rolheiser on pain.  He is a fellow migraineur and his words resonated for me.

Go and read his short post, My Gethsemane.

I adore Richard Rohr, too. I look forward every night to receiving his daily meditation in my inbox. This reminds me I need to listen to the CDs of his I purchased.

This is the first I've read Rolheiser and I'm only far enough into it to know I'm glad it was recommended.
