“I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.” — Romans 8:18
Author Kathryn Anne Casey clung to this Scripture passage in the dark moments after her baby received a prenatal diagnosis. For her, as for any mother, a prenatal diagnosis is cause for deep suffering and grief, whether or not the condition is expected to be life-limiting.
How does a family cope with this heartbreaking reality? Where does a mother turn when culture and even her medical professionals don’t support carrying the child to term? Where is the light in the darkness?
In Journey in Love: A Catholic Mother's Prayers after Prenatal Diagnosis you will find a sensitive, supportive resource from an author who knows this suffering firsthand. Kathryn walks with you through the stages of grief, helps you to pray even when you feel you cannot, sheds new light on the comfort and grace of the Church’s traditional prayers, and provides meditations tied to the liturgical year.
This is a resource to turn to, and return to, for help, hope, and consolation.
