“That summer, I went to my first Steubenville conference, and I encountered Christ in a powerful way during adoration. I realized that Jesus had never left me alone in my grief and loneliness. Instead, He had waited for me at every Mass and in the adoration chapel.
He already knew what it was like to feel alone and abandoned, because he had been left alone to suffer and grieve on the cross. “
