Today’s readings force us to face the challenges of mortality. As the commercial says, “life comes at you fast.” There is a sense of disorientation in these passages. There is a sense that something has gone wrong and help is far away. Authentic theological reflection and spiritual practice must be all season: it must embrace desolation as well as celebration, sickness as well as health, death as well as resurrection.
