Why we all have to suffer? This question, to which many people cannot give a satisfactory answer, seems to constitute some challenge to God's Love, Mercy and Justice. In fact, and this can be well proven, it is not the challenge to Creator's Goodness, but rather Its affirmation. People will always suffer because of their sins; that's the part of God's Justice - some theologians would tell you. That is true but still incomplete answer to the presented issue. Do not forget about God's twofold Mercy, the One that can cleanse us either on earth or in purgatory; both ways lead sufferers to the infinite, divine Love.
