Author Paula Kosin has come to know the rocky landscape of grief very well—through her own losses, by formal training, and by accompanying many bereaved people in the grief support groups. In Grieving: A Spiritual Process for Catholics, Kosin has combined deep wisdom from the Christian tradition with current insights from the social sciences to create a book that can be an effective companion for grievers—Catholic and non-Catholic alike. With a deeply compassionate, calm, and steady approach, Kosin joins readers to help them bear the unbearable and encourages them as they grasp for ways to weather the storm of their grief. Her book provides helpful insights and information about human patterns of grieving and recommends concrete practices to support their process such as journaling, mindfulness meditation, prayer, and nature therapy. It also provides activities to meet the challenges of shifting relationships, such as handling the holidays and other special days, and offers many additional resources for coping and healing.

This book may be read independently by any grieving person. It is also designed to serve as the participant’s book in a grief support group. For anyone going through a period of grieving and for anyone who accompanies them, Grieving: A Spiritual Process for Catholics offers insights, useful information, and hope.

"This book will be the light through your darkest hours."
" Paula Kosin, who knows well the topography of grief, gives us the most clear-eyed and fine-grained guide through our soul's dark hours of grieving. It's especially powerful that this comes to us from the Church, specifically Liturgy Training Publications, the most respected of pastoral publishers. Kosin puts depth of soul to the Church's wisdom on grieving, as if she's reached into the pews, seen our tears, and wrapped her arm around our aching hollowed selves. It's a book that beautifully balances the mind and heart and soul, giving us well-synthesized and comprehensive insights from a wide range of sages, as well as simple steps to walk us through the stages of grieving. And all of it is undergirded with profound spiritual wisdom that will draw us into the knowing that our Catholic tradition has much to buoy us while we find our bearings once again. Throughout the book, the author's tone feels pitch perfect: gentle, wise, and confident. I will keep this on a shelf nearby, knowing there will be not-too-distant hours when this book might save me."
