The New York Times bestselling author of The Holy Longing turns his attention to one of the stigmas of our time.



“Unique insights on the nature of suicide, its devastating effects, and God’s embracing love throughout. Fr. Ron is exactly who I would have wanted at my side when my daughter died.”
—Marjorie Antus, author of My Daughter, Her Suicide, and God: A Memoir of Hope



“Don’t let the size of this book fool you into thinking it doesn’t have much to say about suicide. Each page—each sentence—is rich in insight, wisdom, compassion, and most of all, comfort. Ronald Rolheiser gently dismantles the age-old myths and taboos associated with suicide, and gives brokenhearted survivors of suicide loss genuine reasons for hope.”
—Kay Warren, cofounder of Saddleback Church, Lake Forest, California




Emotional depression leading to suicide is similar to being stricken with cancer. Sometimes a person can be treated and cured; sometimes they can’t be
cured, but can be treated and live with the disease; and sometimes, the disease is untreatable–it eventually kills the person and there is nothing
anyone can do.



A new way of understanding death by suicide with chapters on:

- Removing the Taboo

- Despair as Weakness rather than Sin

- Reclaiming the Memory of our Loved One




Fr. Rolheiser offers hope and a new way of understanding death by suicide.

— James Martin, SJ, author of Jesus: A Pilgrimage
