I had a good lunch today over informal tacos with a woman who has become a sister of my soul and God used it for us to share a beautiful moment. She wanted to learn how to bring her husband communion at home, he has ALS and sometimes in the mornings just getting to Mass is too much…. I love them so and my heart bleeds for them, for her. They are walking a most sacred and painful road, the way of Jesus, the way of the Cross. It is a section of that road which is all too familiar to me and still brings a stopping of my breath at times. But, watching this journey from the outside makes me even more grateful and in awe of God and how He brings us to holiness. It is so apparent to me that only in our brokenness and acceptance of it that we can be made whole.
Blessings that we all may walk the road with such gracious understanding and love.
