Catholic200 SG (Video)
Gregory and Elizabeth Krygsman share their faith journey following the loss of their son, Andrew. Together they drew strength from Mother Mary's example of trust and surrender to God, and together they prayed for the grace of humility so as to bring glory to God by witnessing to His infinite love.
The Faith Perspective, by CatholicSG Radio, is a series of 4 interviews given by PIETA members on their encounter with God through their darkest days of child loss. They share openly and honestly their deepest feelings and their desperation to hold on to the promise that they will one day see their children again.

Often in our grieving, God's gentle whispers find shape in our hearts and transform to loving words on paper. Sharing these often bring comfort and consolation. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to send in your poems/reflections.
When grief and bereavement meet spirituality,
sadness and darkness
meet the Light.
When the laboured and wearied melt in distress,
the gentle and humble
melt in His rest.
When load and burden mount the shoulder,
easy, light weight mount
If we but come to Christ.
