I never got that kiss with Teresa. But as I reflect on that long-ago night, I realize Sister Carmella shared two pieces of wisdom I’ll never forget: to leave room for Jesus and the healing power of a smile. 

How to Stop Running From God

When I admit I’m afraid to let you love me, God, I stop running from you. I realize you care for me with Divine Compassion and Unconditional Love.

    Beautiful meditation Brian. In my meditation I saw He wasn’t in anguish for what lied ahead but because He needed more time on earth. He sorrowed because He wanted to keep evangelizing. He did as much as He could in 3 years but He knew many more people needed to know who the Father was. I believe that is what He was lamenting. His love for those who still needed to hear the Good News carried them in. Just my thoughts.

      A good insight! Jesus wept for all those whom still needed to know who the Father was.
