Editorial Reviews

A useful and informative book on grief ministry. It is easy to read and provides opportunities for ministers to reflect on their own loss and spiritual inventory. It takes one through many facets of the grief process and offers helpful suggestions to the grief minister as he or she ministers to the bereaved. Curley reminds us often that there is no time limit for the grief process and that compassionate listening is the key to understanding what we can do to assist the bereaved in that process.

New Theology Review

This book is highly recommended for all wishing to develop and improve skills and awareness.
Pastoral Music

This work should be counted among the top accessible guides for ordained and lay ministers alike.
Pastoral Music

The Ministry of Consolers gives a thorough and sound presentation of ministering to the grieving.
Pastoral Music

Fr. Curley has written a book not to be left on the parish library shelf. This is a daily reference for both the Pastor and all those called to the Ministry of Consolation. What a great gift for the newly ordained, or any anniversary of Ordination.
Deacon Ray Deabel, National Catholic Ministry to the Bereaved
