Why you should keep trusting in God
even when it all seems to go wrong
Here are straightforward and faithfully Catholic answers to questions that have vexed souls and troubled believers for centuries- if God is all good, why does He allow evil? Why do even those who devote their lives to pleasing Him meet with setbacks and disasters?

How to see GodÔÇÖs loving Hand in everything youÔÇÖre going through
Why Bad Things Happen to Good Catholics will banish from your mind forever the temptation to think that events unfold according to blind chance ÔÇö or even that evil ultimately triumphs in this world. The author, Fr. Henri Morice, helps you see the bad things that happen to you in the glorious light of GodÔÇÖs loving Providence. He dispels some of the mystery surrounding human suffering to reveal how God draws goodness ÔÇö for your own soul and for the souls of others ÔÇö out of even the worst tragedies you suffer. YouÔÇÖll discover here how to recognize GodÔÇÖs love working in all the events of your life, day by day, moment by moment.

Fr. Morice also helps you recognize how (believe it or not) God actually needs you in His plan for the world, and how He speaks to you daily in subtle ways. He instructs you in how you should respond to GodÔÇÖs call in your daily life, and how trust in GodÔÇÖs Providence will bring you peace more lasting than any worldly satisfaction.

This remarkable guide even shows you how to set aside ÔÇö forever! ÔÇö worry about the future, how to deal with misfortune, and how to develop full and lasting confidence in God. Why Bad Things Happen to Good Catholics will charge you with renewed gratitude for the God who loves you more than you have ever imagined!
ÔÇ£With so much suffering and pain in our world, it is a consolation to have Fr. MoriceÔÇÖs concise and erudite explanation of GodÔÇÖs love and providence available to us.ÔÇØ

Author, Does Suffering Make Sense?

ÔÇ£By kindling our faith in GodÔÇÖs mysterious Providence, the book gives us the encouragement we need in the midst of lifeÔÇÖs difficulties and in the face of suffering. It reminds us of ChristÔÇÖs promise of peace as it invites us to respond to Him with trusting faith and courageous love.ÔÇØ
Most Reverend John J. Myers, Archbishop of Newark
