Archbishop Nelson Pérez shares how trauma — sickness and death of a loved one, the trauma of war and suffering — is a part of life that we can’t evade. He advises facing trauma with dialogue, through speaking with God in prayer and with those people we trust. Embedded in trauma is also God’s promise to be with us through it all, just as he was with Jesus in his crucifixion, ultimately raising him in the resurrection — the ultimate sign of hope.
