St Ignatius Brianchaninov (1807-1867) struggled with chronic illness and disability through most of his adult life. Thus his own life experience disposed him to reflect on the meaning of suffering and how through it we might find “a harbor for our hope.” His letters, excerpted and organized here thematically, will equally benefit all who suffer.

In these trying times, these words of St. Ignatius offer a great consolation to those struggling to live a Christian life. The Saint’s letters are permeated with such hope in God’s Providence, that invites us the readers, to also find our hope in the same. Elena Borowski’s translation of this selection of letters is remarkable, for the loving pastoral care of St. Ignatius is felt throughout. Reading these letters gives one a better sense of what St. Ignatius was all about. May we, through his holy prayers, find our hope in the loving Providence of Our Savior, Jesus Christ.
