Overview

Millions of Americans gazed in disbelief as the magnificent World Trade Center buildings collapsed into piles of rubble on September 11, 2001. After the shock and horror wore off, the questions began.

Where Was God On 9/11?

How could this have happened?

Why did God allow such evil?

And then, the daunting thought—Where will God be when I need Him?

Father Benedict Groeschel, C.F.R., addresses all these questions in his new book, The Cross at Ground Zero. He reassures us that the iron cross, found at the world trade center, leads to the cross of Jesus which stands at the center of all pain, all suffering, indeed all history. He explains that Jesus did not come to take away suffering. He came to sanctify suffering by His presence. He was at Ground Zero in the World Trade Center. He will be with you in your own personal Ground Zero whether it is the death of a child, a cancer diagnosis, the loss of a job.

Fr. Groeschell was asked to do three programs on the Tragic events of 9/11/02 for EWTN. I saw one of those programs and found his reflections to be profound. This book is basically those three programs with some more reflections. I only heard one of the three programs and was most moved. I found the Book to be even more profound. It is well worth reading and gives much food for deep reflection. I highly recommend the book.

Fr. Benedict J. Groeschel, C.F.R. takes on the horrible events of September 11th and beyond and reflects on what the spiritual meaning of it all might be. Excellent book that will make the reader ponder the true meaning of life.
