As the coro­n­avirus con­tin­ues to impact us all, we again face the peren­ni­al ques­tion of the role of suf­fer­ing in the Chris­t­ian life. Prov­i­den­tial­ly, Holy Trin­i­ty Pub­li­ca­tions has been blessed to pre­pare a book per­fect­ly suit­ed to this time, a the­mat­ic col­lec­tion of writ­ings drawn from the let­ters of the 19th cen­tu­ry Russ­ian bish­op and writer, St Ignatius (Bri­an­chani­nov). We joined Ele­na Borows­ki, trans­la­tor of this new book, in con­ver­sa­tion to dis­cuss the spir­i­tu­al trea­sury con­tained in St Ignatius’s writ­ings, their impact on her own life, and what they might offer us in the cur­rent tumult of a world­wide pan­dem­ic. Time was also allot­ted for ques­tions from the audi­ence.
