Many of us have lost any sense of 'meaning' in suffering. Some want to avoid it at all costs, even choosing early death. Our Catholic faith talks about 'redemptive' suffering, but what does that mean? Erin Kinsella will discuss this through the lens of her experience of chronic illness and developing spirituality of suffering.

Erin Kinsella is a Consecrated Virgin of the Archdiocese of Toronto and a co-host of "In the Thicket," a podcast on suffering and hope. She holds a Master of Theological Studies from St. Augustine’s Seminary conjointly with the University of Toronto and completed her thesis on the theology of the suffering body.
