Comforting the Sorrowful

18 Feb

Pope Francis stresses forgiveness as an act of mercy we can all do. Linda Andreozzi, the author of Grief Journal, shares her journey to forgiveness of God, of her husband (for dying so young), and finally, of herself.

Journaling and immersion in beauty were two ways Linda sought healing. Grief Journal will help you, and others you know, move toward peace and acceptance of a loss. The luminous art makes this journal a healing sacramental.

Grief Journal is designed in a beautiful, easy-to-use, 6″x 9″ spiral-bound journal/workbook format with the right balance of story and space for your own writing. Click here to view a sample page. 85 pages, $15.95.
