Should we have stopped to talk to him that night, instead of hurrying back to our own rooms? Sometimes I wonder how many people are suffering inside and yet we never really sensed that they needed some comforting or encouragement. It is probably because most of the time we are so focused on ourselves and on the things we have yet to do. May we always be on the look-out for souls that are in need. But we could not do this on our own. We need the guidance of the Holy Spirit at all times, and we need to be sensitive to His leading to be able to respond to that need.
Later this afternoon we are going there to visit him. Even now I could not stop the tears from falling, as I felt his grief and sadness, and the sense of loss. May God grant him the comfort He has always promised to His children, as they trust in Him, and look up to Him especially in situations like this that are difficult to understand.
