The loss of a loved one can lead to many questions. Why did this happen? How can I go on? Will I ever recover? It may be difficult to do in the midst of such sadness, but keeping one’s heart open to God can lead to the answers to these questions and more. “Your grieving is among the most difficult and the most sacred things you will ever do,” writes author Karen Katafiasz. “Your emptiness and pain, your anguish and despair are doorways to life’s most profound mysteries: suffering and death, the meaning of existence, the love people share, God’s love for humankind.”
