Flap copy

In 1993, college student Chris Alar lost his grandmother to suicide.

In 2003, a successful businessman, Chris returned to practicing his Catholic faith "€" and discovered reasons to hope for her salvation.

Now a priest in the Congregation of Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception, Fr. Chris feels called to share the reasons for his hope, and to tell other people who've also lost someone to suicide that their grieving, though it may never go away, can ease.

There's hope for those who've died by their own hand, and there's hope for those whom they've left behind.

Pastorally sensitive and committed to sharing orthodox teaching, this book unpacks the treasures of the Church's teaching, Sacraments, and devotions to bring real, transforming grace into the struggle of grieving suicide, and encourages readers to take advantage of the resources available to them as they confront one of the worst tragedies a person can face: grieving the loss of a family member, friend, or neighbor to suicide.
