Publisher's Summary

Suffering is no guarantee of holiness. Many times it can be an invaluable teacher; other times it can crush a person into self-pity. But the lessons to be learned from suffering are many and, if we learn these lessons well, they can transform our lives, according to a young priest suffering from renal cancer.

In Lessons From the School of Suffering, Father Jim Willig shares his story of being diagnosed in his late 40's with terminal renal cancer and the consequences of living with cancer and undergoing various treatments, none of which stemmed the disease. Willig, a beloved pastor and inspiring preacher, felt called to share the lessons he learned from the great pain associated with having cancer. Foreword by Jesuit Father J. Michael Sparough and introduction by co-author Tammy Bundy. Fr. Willig died in June, 2001.

What the Critics Say

"Most people spend their whole lives trying to avoid suffering, and as a result, their hearts and lives become filled with restlessness and anxiety. Some rare souls embrace the unavoidable suffering of their lives and are led to an inner peace that is the truest manifestation of God dwelling within man. Jim Willig is one of those rare souls." (Matthew Kelly, author of The Rhythm of Life: An Antidote for Our Busy Age)
