“Where do our beloved dead go? How do they live? And what does this all mean for us,
Those questions are animating a project I’m working on between the McGrath Institute
for Church Life, where I work, and Ave Maria Press as part of the Engaging
Catholicism series. To help with this project, I have asked a few people if
they would talk with me about their experiences of grief, about their hope for
communion with loved ones who have died, and about their images of Heaven. I’m
not recording all of these conversations, but I am asking a couple (or maybe
three) people if they would be willing to record an episode for our show so
that you can listen in, too.
Today is the first of those couple or maybe three episodes. My guest is Laura Kelly
Fanucci, a writer and speaker who has worked extensively on grief and longing
and hope and vocation. But she’s also got a story you’ve got to hear. Thanks
for listening in.
