Is your parish or organization equipped to provide adequate support after suicide? When someone dies by suicide, an entire community is affected by the trauma. Loved ones and community members left behind after this tragedy need to know how to process the devastation, reconcile their own feelings of powerlessness, and find comfort in the mercy of God. Yet there are a lack of faith-based resources on the subject, and many Catholics are confused about how to process their feelings—sometimes contributing to their grief and pain. Author and renowned spiritual teacher Ronald Rolheiser has worked pastorally in the area of suicide for decades, and he wants to help affected communities heal by clarifying misconceptions about suicide and offering the hope and comfort of God’s mercy. In this booklet designed to provide comfort to parishes, support groups, prayer circles, and loved ones, Rolheiser addresses seven things we should know about suicide that can help communities heal together with unity and compassion. This booklet is sold in packs of 10. If you are experiencing thoughts of suicide, contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 24 hours a day at  800-273-8255.

I see it as good to have and to help educate those who still think that the one who dies by suicide goes directly to hell. They have already been in hell for so long trying to make it in life. My son was 22 in 1993 when he completed suicide. That was the most painful day of my life and I miss him every day. I did go to about 3 grief groups to deal with the grieving so that I could become better not bitter. I learned about NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) which really helped me to learn and understand the pain of mental, emotional stress/illness that people try to live with. The brain is an organ and as with all organs in our bodies, it can get sick and it does more than we even know. Breaking the stigma by talking about it and teaching and listening is my will now and has been.

Perfect words

An amazing and direct piece of healing to hold on to.

This brief book/pamphlet gives a compassionate and helpful response to suicide but I had expected something more substantial.
