For some occasions there are no words... There is pain beyond our imagining, and sometimes silence is our only adequate answer. Yet in the midst of terrible suffering we are challenged to respond, to be God's presence, servants of consolation and comfort.
There are some who have set out to collect and collate words of comfort, and liturgies to communicate our solidarity with all victims of pain and tragedy whether they are our intimate friends or our global neighbours.
These books are a few seeds for those who seek to communicate compassion in troubled times.
