Hope Does Not Disappoint: Reflections on the Loss of a Loved One
Maureen Martinez and Nelson Ritter ’96

As the last month of the liturgical year, Christian churches have long set aside the month of November for remembrance – remembrance of the soon-to-be-over year with its sacrifices and struggles, its joys and triumphs, but also (and probably more poignantly) remembrance of loved ones whom we have lost.

We recently guided groups of Fordham Prep faculty and staff members through a meditation on loss, a time for sharing stories about our departed loved ones and prayers for the eternal repose of their souls. Having shared our common experiences of being present during the deaths of our mothers, we both quickly realized the importance of memory and celebration of lives well-lived, but also of the inherent tug toward hope in the midst of what can be heart-wrenching experiences. We knew our experiences were pretty similar – Maureen’s mother Nancy passed away six years ago after a five-and-a-half year battle with pancreatic cancer; Nelson’s mother passed away a year ago after a three-and-a-half year battle with ovarian cancer. However, we did not expect the remarkable similarity in our reflections on the specialness associated with being present to dying people in their final hours. Quite naturally, we both used the term grace in all of its forms – as a noun, as a verb, even as an adjective – time and again. Our mutual feelings of gratitude for our mothers were evident, as were our mutual feelings of gratitude for being able to be present for such special moments. It is no wonder November is the month of remembrance, but also the month of gratitude in Christian churches.

St. Paul, in his masterpiece Letter to the Romans, wrote “suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.” The idea of pain ambling, drifting and developing into hope resonated immediately with us as we reflected on our shared experiences. While neither of us could ignore our feelings of loss, we both felt pulled toward hope and joy. In fact, whenever either of us talks about our mothers, we cannot help but smile – smile because suffering has become gratitude, smile because hurt has become happiness, smile because grief has become hopefulness.

In his often-quoted poem Gone from My Sight, Henry van Dyke reflected on loss, analogizing a recently-deceased loved one to a ship leaving port:

Gone from my sight. That is all. She is just as large in mast and hull and spar as she was when she left my side, and she is just as able to bear the load of living freight to her destined port.

Her diminished size is in me, not in her.

And just at the moment when someone at my side says, ‘There, she is gone!’, there are other eyes watching her coming, and other voices ready to take up the glad shout: ‘Here she comes!’

And that is dying.

As we trudge through the month of November, with all of its images of life passing away – the leaves falling to their individual deaths, the sunlight ever-so-slowly retreating, the warmth of the outdoors so obviously gone – we hope all who have lost loved ones can join us in a shout of appreciation and hope for the many opportunities to have been graced by our beloved deceased family members, friends, heroes . . .

As we did at our session for the faculty and staff members at Fordham Prep, we invite you to share the names of those souls for whose eternal repose you would like to pray.  All of their names will be placed on our altar at Fordham Prep and will be remembered at daily mass.
