In that darkness (Fr. Ron Rolheiser)

   Countless times in our daily interactions with others, we suffer moments of coldness, misunderstanding, and unfairness, from the indifference of a family member to our enthusiasm, to a sarcastic comment that is intended to hurt us, to a gross unfairness in our workplace, to being the victim of a prejudice or abuse; our kitchen tables, our workplaces, our meeting rooms, and the streets we share with others are all places where we daily experience, in small and big ways, what Jesus felt in the garden of Gethsemane.

   In that darkness will we let go of our light?  In the face of hatred will we let go of love?
