So much of Milwaukee (humankind) is wounded. And it is not easy to tarry with the wounded. For their/our wounds bear the memory of great suffering. The scars are thick and the pain runs deep.
It is not easy to tarry with the wounded. It requires long suffering, patience, meekness, attentiveness . . . love . . . It is not a charge for everyone. But it is a charge for someone.
It is not easy to tarry with the wounded. But, if it is your charge, it is a great gift to humankind.
I pray today for all . . . who tarry, and pray for the wounded.
