The meaning of pain and pain as a chance given to man

pages: 171-183

Abstract

Under the pressure of analgetic technology, Man is today in danger to loose many traditional values, the purifying Pain as well.

The moral (or intellectual) Pain is inescapable or constitutive part of a normal man, not to speak about the super-normal saints as conscious cross-bearing servants of God who joyously endure their sicknesses „in Christ the Crucified God”.

Pain and suffering are synonimous with life on Earth. We can live even above them, not merely with a Stoic peace of mind, neither with Buddhist indifference, but with a Christian virtue of meekness.
