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.

After stepson died by his own hands, my husband was devastated, and I was state of denial. Found this little booklet on display at a Bereavement Group meeting. The authors deserve the highest compliments for a job well done. Booklet is easy read, to the point and comforting - best medicine!

Very informative and helpful. Exactly what’s needed when supporting someone grieving the loss caused by suicide, which can cause conflict with beliefs held prior. I shared this with my priest and he asked to keep a copy and is allowing them to be put out in the churches information area. Thank you for this important booklet… from a mother whose son left this earth too soon.

Having experienced a death by suicide in my own family, I thought this booklet was one of the most wonderful things I've read. I highly recommend this to everyone who has had this sorrow within their friendships and family.
