Essence of faith.
A much-loved cousin of mine had just died of a late-appearing lung cancer from asbestos infiltrates, and many friends are now coming into their final chapters with suffering as their only sure companion.
I would add that my own favorite gospel is about the road to Emmaus as Jesus' followers sorrowfully ponder his cruel death and their failure to understand why this had to happen. It continues to give hope, as do essays such as the "bookends" of the April issue.
