The Suffering of Hagar: A Psycho-Spiritual Reflection

Author: Stephanie Tivona Reith

The Hagar narrative is a study in suffering and in hope, in dysfunctional human interactions and in spiritual help and sustenace. Hagar’s story can have contemporary relevance in situations involving mental illness, family dysfunction and abuse, homelessness, and general social isolation. It can serve both as a mirror for those who are suffering and as a template for pastoral caregivers.
