Grieving with the Help of Your Catholic Faith

Wonderful, insightful, comforting book. I picked one up that someone donated to our library. Needed it myself - loved the timing - then purchased 10 copies for individuals/couples/families that I knew would personally benefit from this. Sorry to say that so many people are grieving, but so thankful that this offers an opportunity to share God's unconditional LOVE.
I give this book instead of flowers.
Jane(Tennessee, April 13, 2010)
When my daughter was killed, I was angry with God and desperately in need of help to go on. A friend gave me this book. It is easy to read when it's hard to focus past the pain. I re-read it often and give it to Catholic friends when they lose a loved one.

Great Book for the Bereaved

I am beginning work in the bereavement ministry for our church. My suggestion is to have this book available for the family of the loved one at the meeting with the pastor.
