The Wrong View of God & Suffering
Monday, June 25th
Br. Dominic Bump, O.P., will explain why a perfect, all powerful, and just God permits suffering in the world. If God could have prevented us from suffering then why does he allow us to suffer?

Monday, July 16th
Br. Dominic Bump, O.P., will explore how grace works through the sacraments, and can change our lives inside and outside the Church.
