Typhoon Haiyan & the Storm Inside Me

Just because she is quiet about something doesn’t mean she doesn’t care.

In silence she reads, she watches, she cries.

In silence she longs to be there – to give water to a thirsty man, reach out to a crying mother, embrace a lost child, lay down beside a freezing baby, build a temporary shelter and sing with the children who, even in their darkest hour, find joy in the ugly remains of a sad calamity.

In silence she hurts knowing that her life today is very far from the life she wanted.

In silence she yearns. One day she will walk away from the comforts of the flying carpet and again she will walk barefoot amongst the homeless, the widows, the orphans, the sick, the unwanted, the minorities, and the people who are her people.

No, she has not forgotten.

There’s a call going out…. A call to true humility, to live our live responsibly to deepen our devotion to the cross at any price. The mission is still the same…
