by Patti Normile. Deep grief follows dramatic loss. The death of a dear one wrenches our hearts; an accident robs us of physical ability; acts of terrorism blot our view of the future. As insurmountable as these obstacles seem, we can move through the grief to renewed hope and newness of life prayer can be our guide through grief. Author Patti Normile, a longtime hospital chaplain, teacher, and retreat director, offers comfort and insights, plus prayers that include: A prayer for letting go, A prayer of angry grief, A prayer of sadness, A prayer for beginning again, and A Resurrection prayer.
