"Go, then, to all peoples, everywhere... you will be witnesses for me to the ends of the earth."

(from Rev E. Foggitt)
“You who fear the Lord, praise him!... For he has not despised or scorned the suffering of the afflicted one...”
Ps22 begins with the agonised cry: “My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?” which Jesus uttered on the cross. Yet somehow - through patient perseverance - the psalmist comes to rediscover the presence of God in his life.
Reflection: “Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come.” (Anne Lamott)
