May 1st - Day 121
Our Knowledge of Peace does not lessen our pain, yet there is an indefinable Knowing that comforts us in our grief. It is the expression on Mary's face as she holds the crucified Jesus in Michelangelo's "Pieta." It is the peace one feels as one listens to a robin sing its song perched upon a tombstone. It is Hearing "All is well" when the mind screams it is not.
For those who have no Knowledge of Peace, we step in and hold their hand until the grief subsides or until our simple holding allows the Peace that passes understanding to enter the wounded Heart and begin to Teach that which cannot be understood.
