The answer to tears
Here is a woman, a human being, overcome with grief and pain.
Here now is the answer to her tears: Jesus Christ, crucified and risen, Lord and Savior, ineffable God and closest friend.
“Why are you weeping?”
What is it in our lives that causes us pain? What is it that is bringing us to tears or casting darkness upon our soul?
Here is the answer to our tears, to our pain, our emptiness, and every darkness:
...Jesus Christ, once tortured to death, but now living forever and extending that same eternal life to us. He is the healing for our pain.
...Jesus Christ, the humble wanderer who sustains the universe in being and in a wisdom beyond the ken of man. He is the light for our darkness.
...Jesus Christ, who dwells in inapproachable light and yet is closer to us than our very thoughts. He is the love for our emptiness.
Behold the answer to tears: our risen Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
