I am sorry that you are not feeling well.

To cheer you up, here's a wonderful true story to give you hope on the feastday of Cornelius the Centurion:

(It's also a good one to think about before Bp. Robinson's visit)

To whet your interest, here's a snippet from that article:

"They needed space—to think, to read, to imagine what had previously been unimaginable. Their lives had largely been scripted, and “now that we’re writing our own script, everything seems a lot more tenuous,” Megan says. “We needed to think about what we believe. We need to figure out what we want to do next. I never imagined leaving, ever, so I never thought about doing anything different. I have no idea what kind of work I want to do, or where to live. How do people decide these things?” "

Do you think this could describe Cornelius? I think it surely fits me at pivotal times in my life!
