ains and tears bring out a familiar hue of sadness in each of us. But there’s always a reason why it rains, why tears fall. When the sky can no longer bear and the clouds strain itself to hold back, the space around us starts to dim and raindrops begin to fall, first in sequence, until it falls in droves. So are our tears. If the heart can no longer bear the pain, the struggle of emotion, tears fall. Both are reliefs placed there by God our Father. It cleanses the earth and it cleanses the spirit.
The Holy Scriptures put it very clearly –
1If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a ringing gong or a clanging cymbal. 2If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have absolute faith so as to move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3If I give all I possess to the poor and exult in the surrender of my body, but have not love, I gain nothing.… [1 Corinthians 13:1-3]
There was one episode on Jessica Sojo’s Kapuso mo, Kapuso ko [One at Heart] that does just that – it cleanses the spirit in a time of uncertainty, hate, and fear. It has captured more than six million views on FB and more than 200,000 on Youtube which simply means one thing – Love does conquer all.
