Fr. Holland, S.J., is radio guest
Fr. Paul Holland, S.J., to be featured on radio talkshow
Fr. Paul Holland, S.J., Rector of Fairfield University and Fairfield Prep Chaplain, will be interviewed by Dr. Paul Christo, Associate Professor of The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine on Saturday, October 20, at 8 p.m. Eastern time on WBAL Radio in Baltimore. Anybody can listen live online or access podcasts of the show later by going to: www.paulchristomd.com. Dr. Paul Christo is a pain specialist who hosts a weekly radio talk show on pain and pain relief called, Aches and Gains.
The show will discuss the question: "Is pain a curse from God?" When pain overwhelms us, we feel compelled to ask, “Why did this happen to me?” “Did I do something wrong?” “Is this experience a curse from God?” Religion is an important aspect of life for many people and often not discussed in the health care setting. Yet, people often rely on their faith when faced with difficult medical situations, like pain. Answers to spiritual questions are not easy because faith is personal.
There are, however people who have studied scriptures and dedicated their lives to helping us gain spiritual enlightenment while providing guidance along the journey. Two such individuals, Father Paul Holland and Rabbi Mark Strauss-Cohn of Temple Emanuel in North Carolina will be interviewed and help clarify the question, “Is Pain a Curse from God?”
