David (Psalm 69)

“Insults have broken my heart and I am weak. I looked for sympathy but there was none.”

Reflection:
These heavy, sorrowful words could well have been upon the lips of Jesus as he began his journey into the dark night of the cross.

Prayer:
How can this be Lord, God, your heart broken by insults and rejection and no one offers you sympathy and compassion? How can this be . . . ?”
