It is important that we allow ourselves to be mortal……to be human in the way that humans are—expressing pain and grief and allowing others to carry our spear and shield, if for just a short time. In a vacuum, things rush inside to fill the space….and if we were not aware of the great neediness that goes hand in hand with our mortality, we should never have known whether our part was to stand down or leap into the breach. In God, we find a way to let down that burden so that another might be raised up for the good of a work that none of us can fully perceive, but is of exceeding value in the final reckoning.
