On Losing a Child

I cannot imagine how much pain a mother have to go through when she loses a child. I do not even want to imagine. A friend lost her child last Tuesday., her only child. We had the Requiem Mass today and we got to say goodbye to this young, beautiful and lively 27 year old.

During the mass, I thought about Mary when she had to witness our Lord die on the cross, her son and her Lord. I pray that my friend will look up to the Blessed Virgin Mary to find courage and strenght to tackle the loneliness that lies ahead. May she be comforted by the Lord’s love and grace.
