The Steubenville Youth Conferences, an outreach of Franciscan University of Steubenville, are a series of 24 conferences across North America that help teens encounter the love of Christ every summer. Each summer, Life Teen hosts several Steubenville Youth Conferences with the hopes of strengthening and inspiring teens and youth groups in their collective journeys to Christ.
A core mission of Life Teen is to equip parishes to do the hard work, the ongoing day-to-day ministry within the lives of teenagers. Supporting parishes often means meeting you in your needs, questions, and struggles with the hope of creating solutions, sharing inspiration, and celebrating this common mission. One of the premier ways we seek to accomplish this is through the Catholic Youth Ministry Convention.

Why does God allow suffering? In this Edge Video Support, Matt Fradd breaks open this tough question and dives into free will, evil, and the existence of God. Fradd believes that the problem of evil is the greatest emotional obstacle to belief in God, and he discusses a theory by an atheist philosopher that raises questions about how an all-powerful, all-knowing, and all-loving God could allow evil in the world.
He combats this philosophy though with a number of solid points, all stemming from the fact that while evil is an emotional obstacle to belief in God, it is not a strong intellectual obstacle, and as people desiring to know the truth, it’s important to not be led by emotions but by intellect.
Fradd brings up multiple examples of how God is indeed all-powerful, all-knowing, and all-loving despite the existence of evil, and that the existence of evil can actually be an indirect proof of God’s existence. He finishes by reminding us that when we encounter people who are suffering, they don’t need Christian apologetics – they need us to love them and suffer alongside them.
