Todays Readings: Monday of the Second week of Lent



Daniel 9:4b-10

“Compassion” v. 9

OIP (10)Upon learning that I had a brother that died during an abortion, I had immediate grief.  After being shocked that I could grieve someone I never knew existed for my entire life, I was drawn to my mom as I could see the grief in her eyes, in her face.  I was drawn to her in compassion the same way relatives draw closer to each other after a loved one dies.  We suffer with each other as we experience the pangs of the effects of death.  I suffered with my mom in those moments and time that followed.  I felt the loss and it was huge.  In time, I healed and I know part of my healing happened through grieving with my mom as we had compassion for each other.
