But with all that pain a new life enters the world. It is easy to see where this type of suffering leads. However, it is very difficult to see how other types of suffering lead to something as good as a newborn child. Is suffering needless?
What is its purpose? It seems all suffering seems useless but to grow we need to suffer. When a person wants to succeed at his job, he has to work harder and later in the day. He has to improve himself by going to industry and corporate meetings which might involve days and nights away from family or friends. To be a better student, he needs to study late in the night, take the difficult courses, and forgo parties with friends. The above examples are sufferings which one might choose to do to achieve a goal or desire but the sufferings which most people think of do not have any tangible happy ending someone can foresee or plan for.
It is the sufferings which are unplanned, unexpected, and undesirable that shock us. This type of pain shocks us because it is unexpected and undesirable. Then, we become distraught, distrustful and discouraged about life. Sufferings which seem needless are the ones which focus the mind. These needless sufferings are the ones that we need the help of God. It is God who will help us persevere.
I experienced intense suffering while growing up without a father. Well, he was around but he was an alcoholic and lived on the street. He died at 39 when I was I felt immense suffering, anguish, and loneliness at the time. God showed me what a broken family can do to children. The uncertainty, the mortal danger of strange men coming into the house, the feeling of the lack of love, and the instability; all these cause havoc on the emotional well-being of children.
Thousands of kilometres of roads suffering from major defects
Saint Kolbe was a Catholic priest held prisoner at Auschwitz. He continued to perform the duties of a priest and the Nazis beat and harassed him. When 10 prisoners disappeared, the Nazis picked 10 men to be starved to death. My children!

Saint Kolbe volunteered to take his place. He later was killed by lethal injection.
But whoever is made to suffer as a Christian should not be ashamed but glorify God because of the name. Well, he continued to practice his duties as a priest and gave hope to the other prisoners. I do not mean to be a Pollyanna but when people endure suffering it can be turned into a positive with the right attitude and outlook.
In fact, good can come from suffering as seen by Saint Kolbe. If we are afflicted, it is for your encouragement and salvation; if we are encouraged, it is for your encouragement, which enables you to endure the same sufferings that we suffer.
