You Are Not Alone


“Just Because Monday” …  We’ve set aside Monday as a day to share one of the  humorous, thought-provoking or inspirational items I come across …  “just because.”

There are many spiritual themes which touch my heart and thread through my homilies and ministry. Two of those themes are:

  • “You are not alone.”
  • “You matter and you are seen.”

A friend sent me this music video “You are Not Alone,” by Donna Cori Gibson, described as, “A song of comfort for the hurting, lonely, broken hearted, or doubting souls.”  The comforting lyrics are accompanied by powerful images of Christ’s life from film and artwork, including His ultimate sacrifice. I thought that since it is Lent, this might be a good video to remind us of all Jesus did for us out of love … and that we are never alone.

As we’re told in Matthew 28:20, “Remember I am with you always until the end of time.”

Sometimes we just need to be reminded that even though we may feel alone, we’re really not.

Peace friends,

    This is a powerful message but for a limited white audience.. The only black thing I saw was the sheep on Jesus shoulders. As we expand our world view, I wonder how we could change the colors, and keep the message the same. You can’t change the artwork, but you can change the “actors” who play the real time people. Make it more relevant this way in the distribution of the message. In my humble opinion of course.

    Chuck: how true, and how easy to forget. Loving human contact is everything. Read a piece on the Transfiguration recently. The Human Jesus must have been scared out of mind contemplating what he was facing, but He knew he wasn’t alone even when the chose three apostles fell asleep. Have a friend just diagnosed with (extremely rare) ocular lymphoma. No news on the biopsy yet. His buddies are rallying to let him know he and his family are not alone. Thanks for this wonderful reminder
