Sister Simon’s Saints

Illustrated by Dilleen Marsh

I’m Sister Simon.
Hi! I’m Ramón.
Hello. I’m Cathlyn.
I’m Mei Lin.
Hi! I’m David.
And I’m Joshua.

I’m sorry, Mei Lin. The answer is still no.
You don’t understand me. Nobody does!

Mei Lin, It’s true that your mom and I don’t understand you perfectly, but it isn’t true that nobody does.

Isaiah wrote that Jesus Christ has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows. Whatever you suffer, He has suffered. He understands you completely.

I wish you did.
So do I. But isn’t it nice to know that Somebody does?

You know, maybe I don’t understand you and Mom perfectly, either.
That’s all right. Somebody does.

Mei Lin, we do try to understand you, and we’ll try even harder.
I’ll try harder, too.
