TO MARY WILLIS SHELBURNE: On the very comforting fact that Jesus was afraid.
2 April 1955
In great haste. I hope your next letter will bring me news that the operation has gone swimmingly. Fear is horrid, but there’s no reason to be ashamed of it. Our Lord was afraid (dreadfully so) in Gethsemane. I always cling to that as a very comforting fact. All blessings.
