Look at the Light - Words on Loss and Love
by Sofia Cavalletti
During times of suffering, loss, and grief, each of us needs companions who console and strengthen us. As Christians, we also need to understand our experience in light of our faith. At such times, Sofia Cavalletti offered her friend Patricia Coulter such guidance and encouragement. We will all benefit from the reading the excerpts from her letter to Coulter, as well and meditating on the questions and carefully selected texts from Scripture and liturgy that Coulter provides. Many people are familiar with Sofa Cavelletti's writings on the Catechesis of the Good Sheperd. These books help to train catechists and give the theological and pedagogical warrants for that appproach to the spiritual formation of children. In this book we have a rare glimps into her personal life and her deep care for her friends, in this case, her student and friend Patricia Coulter.
