Reviews - What do customers think about Grieving With the Help of Your Catholic Faith?
Helpful Jul 1, 2008
I received this book from my father's Pastor immediately after my father's death. Though I realize that everyone is different, this book helped me immensely in dealing with my father's passing and I believe it can help a great multitude of people--possibly even those who aren't Catholic to an extent. My faith has been tested and still is, but I have found some peace in some of the points made in the book and it is helping my faith to win the struggle. Though it's been over a year now since his death, I still find the book worthwhile to read; especially so after the numbness and the speed of things that occur immediately after death. If you've lost someone recently, I am truly sorry. If you're Catholic, definitely consider purchasing this book. If you're not, think of doing the same, if only to glean one point to help you with your struggle.
Super Information Easy to Read Jun 4, 2008
Excellent. Excellent. Excellent.
A question and answer format takes the reader through the grief process via the Catholic Faith. The short passages can be read individually for those who are busy. Each question and answer flow nicely to give the reader a complete view of the grieving process and the part the Catholic Faith plays into it.
Good book for Grief Jun 14, 2007
I actually received my copy of this book directly from the author when it was first released. I was attending a greif seminar with my father-in-law exactly two weeks after my wife and mother-in-law were killed in an auto accident.
I have found this book to be such a good reference and support, I have bought additional copies for friends and and people I know who have lost their spouses during the past year. Do not be turned off by the title if you are not Catholic, much of the advice is appropriate for those of all faiths.
