THE POOR, THE CHILDREN, AND THE LOST: Post-Synod Ruminations of an Archbishop

We came together confused yet willing to listen, hurting yet full of hope, feeling abandoned yet reaching out to help. We were a sign of contradiction for the world and for ourselves. We came as evangelizers who were also in need of hearing what is good and holy, beautiful, and true. In prayer, we told Jesus our confusions and doubts, our hurts and pains, our sins and betrayals, and he spoke to us and gave us hope. We recognized the Lord as he spoke to us in prayer and as he broke the bread. We can say with joy now, “We have seen the Lord” (Jn 20:25).
