Appearance on Women of Grace on EWTN
Part One: (Program WGR11692)
Guest: Steve Hemler
In his inspiring book, today’s guest gives sound answers to the question that plagues the hearts of those who are suffering: Why does God permit evil, pain, and sorrow? Relying on Sacred Scripture, the teachings of the Church, and personal testimonies, he helps his readers discover that within every suffering is hidden a treasure of grace including hope, healing, and even joy. Let’s welcome Steven Hemler, president of the Catholic Apologetics Institute of North America, and author of Catholic Stories of Faith and Hope: How God Brings Good Out of Suffering.
Part Two: (Program WGR11693)
Guest: Steve Hemler & Terri Thomas
From small disappointments to major losses, suffering inserts itself into our life and changes it forever. When one approaches suffering through the grace of God, however, this time of tribulation and trial can yield the richest of spiritual blessings. Our guests today will share with us about this truth and offer us the lessons learned through personal experience. Let’s welcome back Steven Hemler, president of the Catholic Apologetics Institute of North America and author of Catholic Stories of Faith and Hope: How God Brings Good Out of Suffering, available at ewtnrc.com, the website of EWTN’s Religious Catalogue. Also with us is Terri Thomas whose story of the sudden and unexpected death of her 26-year-old son is included in Steve’s book. Terri is the Adult Faith Formation Coordinator at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Peachtree City, Georgia.
