Afraid to love again

Just a Moment by Fr Jerry Orbos SVD

It was several years since her teenage son had died in an accident, but she continued to grieve. And grieve she did to the point that she became cold to her other son.

One day, this son could not take it anymore and asked her why she ignored him. She broke down before him, embraced him, and ask for his forgiveness. She finally told him that she loved him so much. She confessed that she was holding back her love because she was afraid, afraid to love much, and get hurt much again.

A Moment with the LORD

Lord, help me to love again and again in spite of hurts and pain. Amen.

A Moment with the WORD

“Be not afraid I am with you always.” Matthew 28,5.20
