The Loneliest Journey Ever Made.

Below is an Easter-season message intended for everyone.

It is particularly directed "to those who are alone or feel alone or, worse yet, feel abandoned."

This may include "those longing to be married, those who have lost a spouse, and those who have lost—or have never been blessed with—children.  Our empathy embraces wives forsaken by their husbands, husbands whose wives have walked away, and children bereft of one or the other of their parents—or both.  This group can find within its broad circumference a soldier far from home, a missionary in those first weeks of homesickness, or a father out of work, afraid the fear in his eyes will be visible to his family."

"In short it can include all of us at various times in our lives."

  1. This talk comes near the top of m list of LDS classics. I love it. As soon as church was over I aced home to listen to this while we cooked dinner for Easter. Such a moving talk. Thanks for your post.
