A Meditation on Faith: Sorrow

It is a great tragedy of life that our capacity to endure suffering is sometimes far greater than our power to eliminate suffering.

And it seems to me a great evil that even our endurance has its limits.

Sometimes all we can do is cry… sometimes for ourselves… sometimes for others… sometimes alone… sometimes with others… as a compassionate, silent witness… with all the guts we can muster.
