As Carol Christ's mother lay on her deathbed, surrounded by her husband and daughter, a profound sensation enveloped Christ—a feeling hitherto unknown. The room seemed to overflow with love. From that poignant moment onward, she gained a deep understanding: 'love is the ground of all being.' Regardless of the fate befalling her mother or herself, the certainty remained that 'love would never abandon either of them.'
