Rather than display my usual verbal gymnastics, today I direct the reader to Jeff Miller’s recent post, “Good And Faithful Servant“, over on his blog, The Curt Jester. Jeff recently lost his wife Socorro, after a 3-year battle against cancer. In this piece Jeff is honest and straightforward, as he always is in his writing, about where he is coming from, what his wife meant and means to him, and how important the Catholic faith has been to them both.
If you have lost a spouse, parent, or good friend, you will recognize many of the thoughts Jeff shares in this piece. Even if you haven’t, please do read it. It encapsulates what marriage and faith in God through that sacrament can accomplish, even in the most trying circumstances. My sincere condolences to Jeff, their children, and all of their family.
