They Have Taken Away My Lord
By: Eric Gajewski
It is fact that we will have many things taken away from us in this life. For some it may include finances for others perhaps “good looks” and even for others ability to see, hear or walk. And yet how often do we think of Christ and sin? Furthermore, are we trying to hold on to this world and things or can we truly say we have wept as Mary and asked “Where have they taken my Lord? How many after the Resurrection still cling to the disposition of “holding on to our own wills” rather than “handing over our whole hearts” to the Lord? Nay, do we seek Christ as the saints or do we cling to self as the world? In this sad modern world the many are awaiting the latest devices and technological improvements and yet they think not of what they are truly losing (their salvation). These things keep our minds occupied horizontally on this world but the Cross keeps us focused on the next.
