From the Desk of Father Rubey

As we begin a New Year, many survivors begin or continue on their grief journey. In the immediate aftermath of losing a loved person to suicide survivors are in a state of shock. They can’t believe that this loved one actually took their life. For some this fact can be very difficult to admit, the unspeakable act of suicide has happened to their family now. Survivors oftentimes walk around in a daze for a long time trying to figure out why and what lead this loved one to perform such an awful and destructive act.

Two religious traditions celebrate joyful religious holidays during the month of December. Our Jewish brothers and sisters celebrate the Festival of Lights. Our Christian brothers and sisters celebrate the birth of Jesus. Both traditions are joyful and uplifting events. There are family gatherings and there is an emphasis on gift giving for both of these traditions.
