Questions for Reflection
How do the sensations of sadness, grief, loneliness, or despair feel in your body?

If you have a hard time using your body to express those feelings, what stops you?

If you have an easy time using your body to express those feelings, how do you typically do it? How
does it feel afterwards? During?

Spiritual Practice for the week: get familiar with a difficult emotion, either your own or in solidarity with someone else. Spend time with it and notice how it feels in your body. Notice where the sensations are strongest, and what, if any, resistance you encounter. Try offering those sensations to God as an embodied incarnation of prayer.
