(Jesus shouted) My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? (Mark 15:34)
It can help to find the words to tell the truth of where you are now. If you can find the courage to name ‘here’ – especially in the place where you do not wish to be – it can help you be there. Padraig O Tuama
The way things are vs the way things should be
Out of the darkness that encircles and the silence that engulfs, Jesus shouts. There is rawness here, possibly also surprise. Jesus shouts, maybe objecting to abandonment per se - this is not the way it is to be.
