No one can truly understand what it feels like inside our broken hearts. Our unique experiences are shaped by personality, family background and the circumstances of our loss. At the same time, grief is a universal human experience. Just as we all know love, we all know the devastation of loss. This shared journey of recovery known as grief leads us through our loss. It is our ally, actually, as we weave our way toward healing.
After 30 years of facilitating programs at Mercy by the Sea, Mauryeen O’Brien, O.P., has made her last offering this spring. Over those many years, through her bereavement programs, Sister Mauryeen tended graciously and compassionately to the hearts and spirits of some the most vulnerable seekers crossing our threshold.
