For The Heavy of Heart Sep 21, 2004
Your Sorrow is My Sorrow is one of those once in a lifetime books. I happened to pick this up by accident, or should I say by divine Providence. The words are comforting whether you have lost a loved one, to death, drugs or mistrust...this book will carry you through. The words of Mary come striking through to the heart and lay to rest in the lap of comfort and solace. The prayers are simple yet heartfelt. This is a book that will get you through the rough times. Thank you Joyce Rupp!
A Timely Book Jun 29, 2000
Mary has always been upheld as a model for women who wish to follow God's will, as the ideal mother who will comfort her children. But sometimes it is too easy to look merely at the joyous seasons of her life - the birth of her baby and the awe at what she had brought forth. But Mary also suffered greatly. What this book points out is that we are not alone in our pain. A wondrously loving heart has known sorrow, as much as a human should bear, and still feels pain through us, her children. But there is strength and an eternal promise of hope in the knowledge that there is understanding and love, and another heart to bear your burden with you. This book lovingly points out that we are not alone. So often we think we are, when we are suffering greatly. We feel that those around us do not understand, or we feel isolated in our grief and pain. But the truth is, we are never alone, and there is always someone to cling to. That is the message this book quietly and reverently portrays. A timely book, indeed, in a society that has more pain and sorrow than it should.
