One day a while back, a man, his heart heavy with grief,  was walking  in the woods. As he thought about his life this day, he knew many things were not right. He thought about those who had lied about him back when he had a job.

His thoughts turned to those who had stolen
his things and cheated him.

He remembered family that had passed on. His mind turned to the illness he had that no one could cure. His very soul was filled with anger, resentment and frustration.

Standing there this day, searching for answers he could not find, knowing all else had failed him, he knelt at the base of an old oak tree to seek the one he knew would always be there. And with tears in his eyes, he prayed.

Lord- You have done wonderful things for me in this life. You have told me to do many things for you, and I happily obeyed. Today, you have told me to forgive! I am sad, Lord, because I cannot. I don't know how. It is not fair Lord. I didn't deserve these wrongs that were done against me and I shouldn't  have to forgive. As perfect as your way is Lord, this one thing I cannot do, for I don't know how to forgive. My anger is so deep Lord, I fear I may not hear you, but I pray that you  teach me to do this one thing I cannot do - Teach me To Forgive."

As he knelt there in the quiet shade of that old oak tree, he felt something fall onto his shoulder. He opened his eyes. Out of the corner of one eye, he saw something red on his shirt.

He could not turn to see what it was because where the oak tree had been was a large square piece of wood in the ground. He raised his head and saw two feet held to the wood with a large spike through them.

He raised his head more, and tears came to his eyes as he saw Jesus hanging on a cross. He saw spikes in His hands, a gash in His side, a torn and battered body, deep thorns sunk into His head. Finally he saw the suffering and pain on His precious face. As their eyes met, the man's tears turned to sobbing, and Jesus began to speak.

Have you ever told a lie? He asked?
The man answered - yes, Lord.

Have you ever been given too much change and kept it?
The man answered - " yes. Lord."
And the man sobbed more and more.

"Have you ever taken something from work that wasn't  yours?" Jesus asked?
And the man answered - "yes, Lord."

"Have you ever sworn, using my Father's name in vain? "
The man, crying now, answered - "yes, Lord."

As Jesus asked many more times, "Have you ever"?
The man's crying became uncontrollable,
for he could only answer - "yes, Lord."

Then Jesus turned His head from one side to the other, and the man felt something fall on his other   shoulder. He looked and saw that it was the blood of Jesus. When he looked back up, his eyes met those of Jesus, and there was a look of love the man had never seen or known before.

Jesus said, "I didn't deserve this either, but I forgive you.

It may be hard to see how you're going to get through something, but when you look back  in life, you realize how true this statement is.

Read the following first line slowly and let it sink in.

 If God brings you to it -  He will bring you through it.
Lord I love You and I need You, come into  my heart, today.
For without You I can do nothing.

Ed and your whole family will be in my family's prayers indefinitely. May the Lord be with you all and may Ed be with Him in heaven. I hope that you can find consolation in Ed having been reconciled with Christ's Church so recently. May we all receive such a wonderful last earthly gift from our departed loved ones.

My condolences and prayers, Fatima.

Certainly the 'natural order of things' is that parents should always precede their children in death, but death itself is against the 'natural order' of things'. Since the Fall of Adam, we all suffer from the curse of sin: disease, pain, age, and death. As Romans 6:23 says, 'The wages of sin is death...', but as it also says: but the gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.
I know you are mourning in darkness right now, but remember there is an everlasting light that you can lean on and that can get you through these difficult times. Remember He who said, (Hebrews 13:5b), I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee, will always be by your side. HE is the light of the world. HE will be coming back soon, (Revelation 21:4) And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
In time of trouble, or weariness, or pain -- I always point to the great words of comfort in Philippians 4:

Philippians 4:6-9 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.

Bring your requests and prayers onto God AND think on HIM who alone was true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report, of virtue, and worthy of praise -- think on Jesus. Come to HIM, and lay your burdens upon HIM. HE knows your pain, and HE'll get you through.

God Bless you, and may HE comfort you and keep you.

May God rest his soul.

I know that there is great significance to you that he had gone to confession and Mass and I was thinking what a gift God has given you for peace of mind but I know that you still hurt unimaginably. I will pray for you and all those who will miss him until they meet him again.
