we encounter the next truth about ourselves when and how we
can bear it, as our loving Lord knows best. "I have many
things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now." (Jn. 16:12)."
Next week for us who are Orthodox
is Holy Week.
For all those on the Western Calendar, blessed
rest of Holy Week and Easter to you!
