Fr. Lou quotes Zechariah 9: 9: "Rejoice heartily O daughter Zion. Shout for joy." Father then lists three heartbreaking stories from the human condition of pain, loneliness and trauma. He questions how each of those persons could possibly "shout for joy?" He then reminds us that we as church are called to Christ for rest and also called by Christ to be rest and compassionate to others. "The Lord lifts up all who are falling and raises up all who are bowed down." Ps 145: 14.
