Front Cover for Kristi


So Thin Is the Veil

A remarkable love letter from husband to wife that reminds us all of the sanctity and depth of the marriage bond.

Beautifully poetic and theologically insightful, Kristi: So Thin Is the Veil, is the moving story of great love and deep loss.

Kristi Beaulieu died August 1, 2001 at age 52 following a 12-year battle with cancer. Her husband, Peter 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.

A great book of Catholic spirituality and marriage.

Reviews and endorsements

“Beautifully written, this book is a riveting and inspiring story of faith, a provocative reflection on death and eternal life, and a love poem. G.K. Chesterton said that married love is a ‘moment filled with eternity.’ Peter Beaulieu has managed to capture that moment in words.”
Dale Ahlquist, president, American Chesterton Society and author of G. K. Chesterton: The Apostle of Common Sense


“Would that all spouses could continually celebrate a life of such love.”
