    "I believe..help my unbelief"

    As we approach Holy Week, we turn to Jesus' encounter with a desperate father in order to understand the apparent frustration that Jesus expresses. In prayer we try to discover how, while we might be disappointed and frustrated with ourselves, Jesus only reacts to his desire for union with each one of us being impeded. This is what he wants, and in the depths of our hearts, we do as well.
