Thank you to Mary DeTurris Poust for her reflections in her latest column (CNY, Aug. 31). By sharing her difficult experience of early summer, she did a great service. Too often, we conceal trying moments that test our faith. Too often, we think that we are the only ones to suffer a crisis that causes us to pull back from God’s loving presence in our lives. Mrs. Poust sought the counsel of the wonderful Trappists and shared her joy with us all.
