Grief and Miscarriage

On AMDG: A Jesuit Podcast, Kathy Powell shares her story of miscarriage and learning to grieve. She says, “Grief is rather obnoxious, because it’s not linear.”

Kathy explains how she used a modified Ignatian Examen to remind herself that God is in the grief. She introduces listeners to St. Catherine of Sweden, the patron saint of miscarriage, and shares ideas for how to accompany people in their grief. The podcast episode ends with an Examen of a Day of Crisis. Listen here.

Kathy is the Creative Director working with Becky Eldredge’s Ignatian Ministries.

  1. Unfortunately my rather peculiar hearing loss means I cannot listen to a podcast. I need to follow along with a transcript, much the same as television and movies offer closed captioning. It’s frustrating – and sad – to be closed out of podcasts

    • Sharon, Though I do not have a full transcript of the episode, I would love to send you the script of the prayer I wrote, An Examen for a Day of Crisis, and am happy to answer any questions you have. Please don’t hesitate to reach out – Hope it’s an above-average Friday for you!
