The 7 Intentions of Mourning
Carrying the Cross of Grief, with Meaning and Hope

John & Sandy O’Shaughnessy

When we unite our suffering with the suffering Christ, we learn that it can be redemptive and fruitful as part of His salvific mission. The Seven Intentions of Mourning are each conscious choices and together a unique pathway to healing where our grief finds a meaningful expression. Each intention is distinctly positioned to help us carry our personal cross of grief, as we discover that love endures all and that good can come from bad when there is hope.

“An invaluable resource for those whose hearts have been broken by grief. Guided by creative insights, practical suggestions, and filled with compassion and wisdom, and most importantly, easy to read and understand.”

Gerry Cox
Director, International, Death, Grief, and Bereavement Conference
University of Wisconsin-La Crosse

“A book that offers to all who have suffered loss the permission to grieve in our own unique way with the potential for a transformative and indeed redemptive experience.”
