The Mystery of Suffering
$10.46 - $12.27

In The Mystery of Suffering—a timeless classic first written in 1963—celebrated British Benedictine monk, author, and sculptor Hubert van Zeller (1905-1984) offers an eloquent response to the question of human suffering: Those who endure suffering with hope and trust in Divine Providence will embark on an ever-deeper path to holiness that leads to eternal glory.

Van Zeller believed that those who surrender to the pain and embrace it as a way to identify with the Passion of Christ discover its deeper meaning, replacing fear with trust, resistance with peace, and defeat with the “triumph of grace.”

Written by Hubert van Zeller


 “Van Zeller embedded in my soul not just the poetry, but the reality that there can be no eternal beatitude without suffering, no crown without the cross. With his frank, practical, even workmanlike Benedictine spirituality, van Zeller showed me the operation of grace even in my pious failures.”
Al Kresta, President of Ave Maria Radio
 “How grateful we should be to have van Zeller’s book back in print. He was a brilliant writer whose spiritual reflections reflect a life of monastic contemplation. The Mystery of Suffering is not meant merely to be read but to be pondered.”
Lawrence S. Cunningham, John A. O'Brien Professor of Theology (Emeritus), University of Notre Dame
 “Dom Hubert van Zeller’s spiritual classic provides us with a timeless framework on how to seek for and find Christ in the midst of our suffering.”
Deacon Joel and Lisa Schmidt, Speakers and writers at
