Prayer in Sadness & Sorrow

Prayer of lament is prayer in moments of deep suffering or hopelessness, when God can seem absent or distant. This booklet introduces this difficult but vital aspect of the spiritual battle. First the author considers the dangerous alternatives to crying out to God, then he shows how scripture, the teaching of the Church and the example of the saints can guide us in our journey from anguish towards peace.
