Finding God in the midst of suffering

Why does a loving God allow suffering? The nuns wrestle with this eternal question.

"We are confronted with great, great mystery — God that doesn't always make sense to us," Sister Maxine says in this "Ask Sister" clip. "It would be not helpful to not question that in our lives, and I think it is good to question. Good to question what kind of a God we have, what kind of a God we need, what kind of a God we want to help bring about in the world."

As one commenter says, "We've been asking these questions since we were first conscious and probably a little bit before that."
