Jesus, exposed and vulnerable on the cross, invites us to share our inner life and struggles. Telling our stories can be painful, like touching wounds, a kind of death. Good listeners help by attending to our stories with their surprises, seeming contradictions, and scattered pieces. Listeners help us hear how these pieces together form us. Being listened to literally helps our bodies heal. Love listens.

-Br. Luke Ditewig, SSJE
