Heeding the Call of Life

~ by Father Arnaldo Pangazzi~

There is a tremendous wisdom that is accumulated in one's encounter with grief, and it needs to be shared. Healing takes place when we turn our pain into a positive experience and we realize that helping others is the key to helping ourselves.  When that happens our problems don't look so big.

We expand on new found strengths and we discover that as one door closed, many others have opened. The road to recovery from grief, therefore, is to take time to do things which will enable us to give meaning to our lives (and the lives of those we are grieving). That's when our journey through grief becomes a journey of discovering ourselves, our potential and our resources in the encounter with life.

That's when we become BETTER people rather than BITTER people. In grief, no one can take away our pain because no one can take away our love. This call to life is to learn to love again.
