    “Pierces the heart”…a sharp word picture. How often this cry of “why” has been echoed through the years. Maybe when God seems absent…when the heart is pierced…He is closest of all? Dietrich Bonhoeffer wrote while in a prison camp…”Only this Suffering God can help.” He is risen. Risen indeed. Blessings.
