Distance

This is so comforting on days when I miss Innocent so much it hurts...

For the people of God, there is no such thing as distance, even if they be thousands of miles apart. However far away our fellow human beings may be, we must stand by them . . . . When Christ unites us, distances don't exist. When I leave this life it will be better. I'll be closer to you.
