In a desperate place.

the cross and holy spiritSometimes we feel emptied of everything except pain and loss. It is not easy to cope here, but if we look innerly, see beyond the barrenness of our experience, cling tightly to the Cross, we may find that even in this most desperate of places, love can touch us and the Spirit can bring us gifts to use and our lives can be filled with new strength,with new hope, with new understanding.

And somehow we have managed to cope with the uncopeable with, we have borne the unbearable, we have held on till the moment has passed and we have been lifted by the Spirit into the Heart of Love, from which all Mercy flows. Amen
