Item description for Sharing the Darkness: The Spirituality of Caring by Sheila Cassidy...

Warm, honest, and highly personal, Sharing the Darkness meditates on the mystery of our wounded humanity, trying to wrest meaning and a spirituality of caring out of the reality of suffering. With unforgettable portraits of courage, love, and grace in its human form, Cassidy interweaves her own story and those of her patients with moving reflections on the Gospels. What she ultimately shows us is that the way to God is not different from the way to our own humanity.

Reviews - What do customers think about Sharing the Darkness: The Spirituality of Caring?

very encouraging and interesting spiritual account  Jan 8, 1998
Sheila Cassidy's intent in writing this book was to discuss what draws people to work with dying patients, which she does. However much of the book is self-revelation, as she explores her own messy, misdirected spiritual path, sincere and devout, but frequently meeting failure, as in her attempt to become a nun. She seems very well suited to hospice work, and seems pretty honest about her own character flaws. Amazingly, I found myself feeling quite cheerful while reading her book. How nice to read about the spiritual strugglings of another, and how encouraging to see that she has attained a depth of spirituality many people never reach, in spite of all her flaws. There's hope for the rest of us who sincerely want to live a spiritual life, but could never emulate the self-sacrifice of a Mother Teresa.
