A Second Look: What does it mean to receive and deliver good news?

-A A +A
By Fran Salone-Pelletier, Religion Columnist

My story began in March, some details have already been described, but much more has occurred since then.

It had been a difficult week for me. I had tripped, falling over a small stool that was hiding in plain sight. The immediacy of the pain signaled something not-so-good had occurred. Sure enough, it had. Thankfully, it was not a fracture. It was simply a sprain.

Did I just type those words? Simply? Not by a long shot. The persistent ache took over my life. I was not a gracious receiver of the good news. I was an announcer of the diminishment of my life.
