Overview

Have you ever found yourself tongue-tied when encountering someone suffering, dying, or having just lost someone close? As people of faith, we are invited to trust in the wonderful goodness of God. Then how are we to understand the sufferings of so many of God's people? Where is God to be found in the midst of a world filled with so much pain and loss? What difference does it make to pray? No One Cries the Wrong Way offers some glimpses into these great questions. Certainly, there are no easy answers. Any words about God will fall far short of the truth of who God is. Indeed, we stand here before the great mystery. But we do not stand along; without hope; or without something to offer. Consoling in a way that is both simple and profound, Fr. Kempf helps us trust the Love in the midst of the pain. At the end of the book, there is a prayer service for each chapter, questions for reflect or discussion, and quotes for meditation and prayer.

Short, easy to read, considers all the questions that grieving and hurting people ask and wrestle with. I have given away several copies to people who were grieving the loss of a life or a relationship, and they found it helpful. Also gives helpful advice about what to say and not say to those who are hurting.
