I know you

by Fr. Jeff

As she got out of her car in front of the church, she tried to fight back the tears. I met her behind the hearse to bring her comfort at the death of her husband.

Father, thank you for being here. I know you don’t know who we are, but it means so much for our family.

I really don’t like celebrating funerals without meeting the family but I couldn’t this time. They had arrived from across the country, and I couldn’t meet with them in the two hour period before they arrived.

That’s ok. The Church knows you. Jesus knows you.

I pray that the same is true for me. My prayer tonight is that when it is my turn, You will say

I know you.
