Book Description: Beautifully poetic and theologically insightful, Kristi: So Thin Is the Veil, is the moving story of great love and deep loss: Peter Beaulieuâ€™s compelling testimony to his wife, Kristi, who died Aug. 1, 2001 at age 52 following a 12-year battle with cancer. Beaulieu, a retired urban and regional planner, shares the story of his deepening faith and affirms that while faith does not solve grief, grief "deepens us in our faith." This faith has led him to the realization that though he and Kristi may be parted, they remain joined in a real way in the communion of saints. The reality of Christ embraces and unites all of the faithful, both living and dead. A great book of Catholic spirituality and marriage.
