I light a candle…
In spiritual direction, on phone calls, and in email exchanges, I hear “There is so much loss in my life I don’t know how to cope.”
In those few words, the pain of Central America, Europe, the Middle East and more becomes the pain right here in Austin.
I light a candle to hold you in the Light.
I receive an anointing with blessed oil that I may bless you with my presence and my broken heart weeps tears for those too exhausted to cry.
God’s tender mercy touches each of us and bathes us in Love.
