Love and mourning may seem to be opposite emotions, but grief, as Kathleen Skerrett argues, has been pervasive with the Christian notion of love. In this study she examines key writings from three major Christian theologians: Augustine, the medieval mystic Hadewijch of Brabant, and the Spanish mystic Teresa of Avila. Skerrett's aim is to offer contemporary Christians resources for perceiving how intimately linked grief is with prayer and action. Only when loss is acknowledged - of community, of family, of companions - can people move beyond mere nihilism.
