Pope Benedict wrote:
“…Together we confirm that the Holy rosary is not a pious practice banished to the past, like prayers of other times thought of with nostalgia. Instead, the Rosary is experiencing a new Springtime. Without a doubt, this is one of the most eloquent signs of love that the young generation nourish for Jesus and His mother, Mary. In the current world, so dispersive, this prayer helps to put Christ at the centre, as the Virgin did, who meditated within all that was said about her Son, and also, what He did and said. When reciting the Rosary, the important and meaningful moments of salvation history are relived. The various steps of Christ’s mission are traced. With Mary, the heart is oriented toward the mystery of Jesus. Christ is put at the centre of our life, of our time, of our city, through the contemplation and meditation of His holy mysteries of joy, light, sorrow and glory….”

What is Grief?
Grief – is the thoughts and feelings that are experienced within oneself upon the death of a loved one. Grief is the internal meaning given to the experience of bereavement.
Mourning – is taking the internal feelings and thoughts of grief and expressing it outside of oneself.
We all grieve at the loss of our loved one. But it is only when we mourn our loss that we move forward in healing and wholeness.
Bereavement group sessions are available. If you have experienced the loss of a loved one recently or in the past years and would like some information, please contact Linda Wisz 416 620 7662
