During the Last Supper, the Apostles were dejected as they learned that Jesus would not be with them -- in His physical presence -- very shortly. Detachment could cause them a lot of pain.

One of the things that I find difficult in life is detachment: from people, from things, from events. It is a by-product of giving your all, your best, to whatever endeavor is given to you. In the end, you get attached and when time comes that you have to move on and leave whatever you have accomplished behind, the process of detachment is costly -- emotionally and psychologically.

But life must go on! We are not meant to "build three tents" in this world. We are just here to sow seeds. And after we have done so, we let go and we let God do the rest of the work.


"Lord, help me to let go of people who have become part of me, of things that have become my comfort and convenience, of events that have become my joy. Help me to let you, my God, take the lead in this journey called 'life' towards the place where there's no need to let go anymore; for there, what is left is to let God. AMEN."

"Sacerdotes, 'consagrados en la Verdad'"

Estar inmersos en la Verdad, en Cristo, de este proceso forma parte
la oración, en la que nos ejercitamos en la amistad con Él y aprendemos a
conocerle: su forma de ser, de pensar, de actuar. Rezar es un caminar en
comunión personal con Cristo, exponiendo ante Él nuestra vida cotidiana,
nuestros logros y nuestros fracasos, nuestras fatigas y nuestras alegrías -es un
simple presentarnos a nosotros mismos ante Él. Pero para que esto no se
convierta en un autocontemplarse, es importante que aprendamos continuamente a
rezar rezando con la Iglesia.
