The Magis Center produces educational materials designed to refute contemporary “inaccurate secular myths”. One such myth is, “Suffering in the world proves God doesn’t exist. If God was all powerful he could stop suffering. God was all loving he would stop suffering.”
While this line of thinking sounds compelling, it’s actually built on faulty logic and ignorance of the facts. Father Spitzer dismantles this myth piece by piece with Happiness, Suffering and the Love of God, and shows us how to find meaning in suffering and lasting happiness.

Happiness, Suffering, and the Love of God DVD
In this video series, Fr. Robert Spitzer, S.J. explores happiness in the revealing light of human transcendence and immortality. Beginning with the commonly held principle that different forms of happiness correspond to different fundamental human desires, Fr. Spitzer guides viewers through four distinct but related sources of happiness (pleasure, achievement, contribution, transcendence), showing how they form a hierarchy and explaining why only the highest level (transcendent happiness) will ultimately fulfill us.
These workbooks are designed to be used with the DVDs. Their usage will improve retention many times over as well as provide a valuable reference tool.
Happiness: The Series
Happiness is the one thing you can choose for itself – everything else is chosen for the sake of happiness.
In this one phrase, Aristotle reveals how happiness affects our view of ourselves, purpose, what we pursue in life and career, who we choose as friends and spouses – just about everything we believe and hold dear.
