WE ARE ALL ON A JOURNEY – from the moment we are born to the final minutes before our death. But as we live our busy lives, we oftentimes ignore the inner hurts and pain we may be carrying. In Lessons from a Bedside, Breda Casserly, a healthcare chaplain at the Galway Hospice Foundation, shares the wisdom she’s learned from her patients as she’s journeyed with them through serious, often terminal, illness.
Here are stories of self-acceptance, grief, forgiveness and memory inspired by the people Breda has met over the course of her work, along with her own story of coming to terms with personal loss. Told with simplicity and compassion, Lessons from a Bedside is a book of love, spirituality and humanity which shows us paths to healing.
