My friend's father (who has reoccurring cancer) told her to come home.
I know at least 6 or 7 people who are in the middle
of great sorrow, grief.
Lent is also a time when we have to watch out for
unexpected conflict with others;
the devil wants to separate us.
Others I know are ill or children are ill.
I have no answers save one:
the Cross of Christ and Christ's Resurrection.
May God carry us to Holy Week and Pascha.
