Cast Down and Faint of Heart

January 23, 2008

I’ve had sad news tonight: a friend sitting alone with a grievous loss.  My heart goes out to her, and to other friends who are struggling right now with sickness or fear or loneliness.   So much sorrow, and there’s so little we can do for one another, really.   In the words of the old collect, I’m burdened for all those “cast down and faint of heart amidst the difficulties and sorrows of the world.”

    My heart goes out to you. It’s hard to feel so far away when you just want to put your arms around someone.
