WGR11612 - Pandemic, Civil Unrest, and Suicide, Part 2
Guest: Fr. Chris Alar
The death of a loved one is undoubtedly the most exquisite of sufferings. It penetrates the depths of our soul and pierces our heart with the keenest of swords. And when that death is caused by our loved one’s own decision, it leaves us wondering and worried – how could we have missed the signs, how did I contribute to this awful outcome, could I have intervened, what about my loved one’s soul, is there hope for him, for her, is there hope for me? Father Chris Alar knows these questions – he asked them all – but he also knows the answers, and he’s going to (continue to) share them with us today. Father Chris is a priest with the Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception and has traveled the globe preaching the message of mercy. He wrote and produced the DVD, “Divine Mercy 101” and is a frequent guest here on EWTN. He shares insight and inspiration with us about his own struggle with the suicide of his grandmother and the lessons he learned about God’s mercy and provision in his book, After Suicide: There’s Still Hope for Them and You.
