Grieving? When you’re ready, here’s comfort …

Here is the beginning of a blessing by Joyce Rupp in her book Now That You’ve Gone Home: Courage and Comfort for Times of Grief (Ave Maria Press).

“May your circle of understanding and caring persons be many and may you allow them to support and sustain you in your sadness.

“May you rest your heartache in the compassionate arms of God each day and find comfort from this Enduring Love.

Read the whole blessing: Spirituality & Practice: Book Excerpt: Now That You’ve Gone Home, by Joyce Hutchison, Joyce Rupp.

When you’re ready (grieving is not easy work) you may indeed find courage and comfort in this collection of stories, meditations, and prayers. If you are called upon to offer comfort to one who is grieving you will find this an excellent help to give light and healing to your words.
