At some time in our lives, all of us will experience feeling abandoned--by God, by what we thought made life worthwhile, by those we thought we loved and who loved us. As Christians focus on the stories of Holy Week, one of the most poignant images of the week is Jesus' cry of abandonment from the cross. Rather than pray for mercy, he cried out to God--in despair? Or in anger? What do we do with our emotions of abandonment?
