When we unite our suffering with the suffering Christ, we learn that it can be redemptive and fruitful as part of His salvific mission. The Seven Intentions of Mourning are each conscious choices and together a unique pathway to healing where our grief finds a meaningful expression. Each intention is distinctly positioned to help us carry our cross of grief, as we discover that love endures all and that good can come from bad when there is hope. Ideal for Catholic parish support groups or those seeking to pick up the pieces and live a healthy life.

About the Author
Sandy O'Shaughnessy had two moments of impact. In 1998 her husband was diagnosed with an aggressive bone cancer. Five months later her mother was severely paralyzed in a car accident. Her mother died in 1999 and then a year later in 2000 she lost her husband leaving her an only parent to two young children. Just recently, Sandy lost her Dad and her father-in-law. She holds a master's degree in Pastoral Ministry with an emphasis in bereavement, and feels called to minister to those who mourn. In addition to being Co-Founder and Servant-Leader of Good Mourning Ministry, she works at Our Lady of Good Counsel Catholic Church as a Director of Religious Education. Together, John and Sandy have four children, Eric, Collin, Morgan and Ryan, as well as daughter-in-law Kim and their newest addition, granddaughter Claire Ann.
