Our former communion


"Nothing can make up for the absence of someone whom we love, and it would be wrong to try to find a substitute ... It is nonsense to say that God fills the gap; he does not fill it, but on the contrary, he keeps it empty and so helps us to keep alive our former communion with each other, even at the cost of pain."

--Dietrich Bonhoeffer
