Reflection — June 19th
Bishop Desmond Tutu tells a story of sitting with a South African man watching while the previous powerful authority in that country bulldozed the man’s family home and village prior to relocation from his ancestral lands. “Thank you Lord that you love us”, the man said quietly.
In times of suffering and darkness, in illness, bereavement, uncertainty and loss, we are held in the love of God, and find there the wellspring of perseverance. This love made plain in the pierced hands of Christ and the wound in his side, who endured and persevered for us to the horrors of Calvary and beyond.
