I have been on the phone for hours this evening. I am always grateful when people call me to tell me about the tragedies in their lives. It can feel heavy (and dark), but I am honored by their trust in me. And I am gladdened to know that they are probably looking for what I am sure to tell them... pray, trust God, pray some more, etc.
But it is amazing the horrible things that take place in this world. I just erased a long paragraph about the deaths, suicide, despair, etc. There is no reason to put it here. But I know of many broken hearts tonight. I will pray for them tonight and tomorrow.
I will go to mass in the morning and be grateful that I can.
