Those who have been married for more than a few days, and those who counsel young married people, realize that one of the greatest fears of a young wife–and of a young husband, too, if they’ll admit it–is of abandonment. “Will he come home? Will she realize some difficult truth about me and leave?” Every realistic couple must have had a discussion about what would happen if husband or wife dies–what will the survivor do and whom would the survivor count on? These are real fears, and require real responses. The Word of God to us today reminds us that the Church is a Bride, and that this young Bride, before Christ’s ascension into heaven, was wondering, “what will I do when He leaves me?”
