April 3 – About grieving

Good Friday,  April 3  ” I have concluded that since it is beyond our comprehension, Jesus came not to explain suffering but to weep with us and to suffer with us.”  Francis

I hadn’t planned a post today;  I’ve been sifting emails that I saved but hadn’t the time to read.  This one, from January 23, changed my mind.  Tom Reese wrote about Pope Francis encountering a weeping 12 year old Filipino.  This is not a poem; it’s a column.  To me, it reads like a Good Friday contemplation.

Pope Francis: ‘If you don’t learn how to weep, you’re not a good Christian’ by Thomas Reese
