Look at the Light: Words on Loss and Love from Sofia Cavalletti


Look at the Light
Words on Loss and Love from 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 Shepherd. These books help to train catechists and give the theological and pedagogical warrants for that approach to the spiritual formation of children. In this book we have a rare glimpse into her personal life and her deep care for her friends, in this case, her student and friend Patricia Coulter.

Available from through Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Publications (CGSUSA online store), September 2019.
