Bereavement and Grief Resources
“In the People of God, by the grace of his compassion
granted in Jesus, many families prove by their deeds that death does not have the last word: this is a true act of faith. Every time a family in mourning – even terrible mourning
– finds the strength to guard the faith and love that unite us to those we love, it has already prevented death from taking everything. The darkness of death should be confronted with a more intense work of love.
‘My God, lighten my darkness!’
is the invocation of evening prayer."
-Pope Francis on Coping with Loss
