Leading us home: the experience of walking alongside the homeless
By Phil Brennan, Romero Institute, Waterford
Somewhere the Spirit is stirring, inviting us to share in the evolving mystery of Christ’s presence among the weak and the broken. Here we come face to face with the realisation that the crucifixion is not an end in itself but a gateway to something lasting. His love lives on through us. It is then we begin to hear the faint whisperings of hope rise from the shadows.
Whispering hope, Oh how welcome Thy voice, making my heart in its sorrow rejoice.
Septimus Winner, 1868
