Overview

A pietà is any person or group of persons holding a broken body in death or near death. In Comforting One Another, Mains says pietàs are formed whenever we hold another person who is facing life's sorrows. And in our troubled times pietàs are everywhere, from Michaelangelo's masterpiece sculpture of Mary cradling the body of Christ to the picture of the emergency worker carrying the child out of the Oklahoma City bomb wreckage. Mains reveals her own experience in suffering, how looking to the Cross puts all trials into perspective, how pain can be used to taste the deep mercy of Christ, and how that mercy can be extended to those around you who are also suffering.
