Sometimes when we are leaving a family member or a loved one, we want to provide them with instructions that will help them in our absence. There is much we should tell them, but we can’t say everything we want to say. Even if we had time to instruct them, they may not understand everything. We can only hope that the spirit of what we did say to them will secure them while we are away. At that moment, we can only trust in God. If we ask Him, He will protect those we leave behind until we return. Since we are united with Him through Baptism, He will protect us on our journey and those we left behind because we are His family.
