Mothers who travel the hard road of miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant loss often feel profoundly alone; few people who haven’t experienced it truly understand its heart-wrenching nature.
The good news, however, is that there is someone else who has a crystal-clear understanding of what it means to lose a child, someone who knew of the agony that her son would endure long before his death: the Blessed Mother. Mary understands pregnancy and infant loss, and wants to offer us comfort and encouragement.
The mysteries of the rosary are her perfect tools for doing so. Mary’s journey closely reflects the journey of women experiencing pregnancy and infant loss, one that travels through joy, sorrow, and, eventually, glory.
Blessed Is the Fruit of Thy Womb: Rosary Reflections on Miscarriage, Stillbirth, and Infant Loss invites grieving mothers to let the Blessed Mother accompany them on their journey of grief and healing. Mary not only understands their loss, but wishes to bring mothers to healing through the saving work of her son.
For each mystery of the rosary, author Heidi Indahl compassionately shares her own experiences of miscarriage, stillbirth, and infant loss, offering insights about how those losses are connected to the experience of Jesus and Mary as revealed by the mysteries of the rosary.
A Scripture quote, questions to ponder, and prayer intentions help readers meditate on each mystery. Readers can record their thoughts, prayers, or even a note to their little one in the provided writing space, making Blessed Is the Fruit of Thy Womb a journal for healing, as well.
