I felt dizzy every time I looked down… the rocks, the waves wildly crashing on them, roaring like a lion… tearing my heart apart. I got goosebumps… I took a step back… I was scared… I stayed still, holding my breath… no! I’m not going back. I’ll vanish into the sea. I trudged towards the edge… the steep rocks… the sea was calling me… the wave… I’m coming…. I closed my eyes…go to link

«Would you like a cup of tea at my place?» I heard a soothing voice behind my back which blurred my mind.
I opened my eyes, like waking from a dream. Who addressed me at that time I had decided to leave once and for all, all alone, this vain world of solitude? Who kept me from merging with the foaming sea that rushed on the rocks? Is it possible?
Dazed, I turned around … an old man. I was nearly angry, but I couldn’t hold a grudge against his calm kind face. I walked carefully towards him… I didn’t want anyone to be present at the moment I would escape everyone and everything… I hadn’t understood… I had forgotten his question, lost in his honest, kind eyes… «Would you like a cup of tea?» he repeated. «That’s my house» he said pointing at a white house with the breathtaking view of the despondent cliff. I wasn’t sure whether I wanted him to leave me alone or whether I had seen him before… I didn’t even know whether I liked tea… The only thing I knew was that I had no reason to deny the most humane, the gentlest, and the most sincere proposal in my life… the most pure and unpretentious smile…
This must have been the conversation of 160 desperate people with Don Ritchie, the «Angel of the Gap», as people called the veteran marine of the Royal Australian Navy during World War II. For 50 years, sitting at his balcony in South Wales, he was gazing at the «Gap», the cliff which many desperate people chose as the point of their «departure» from this world. Every time he noticed someone walking «suspiciously», he approached offering a cup of tea… His invitation rarely got rejected… an invitation to tea which eventually proved to be an invitation to life… What made him so special?
He was a human… a humane human. He didn’t turn a blind eye but he cared for others, strangers or not, he cared for his neighbor… He was like the Good Samaritan, but instead of wine and oil he used a smile and kind words from his heart.
In May 2012, this «angel» flied to the sky, leaving his legacy behind. Maybe you wonder who needs you and me, your wine and my oil. Nevertheless… there are many people around us. Most of them don’t ask, yet they wait… Don’t think you have nothing to give them. God gave us all a heart. He asked us to love our neighbor as ourselves. Even if you aren’t a word person, one smile may be enough to become their angel… or your exemplary life… or your joy, the reflection of your belief in Christ. Let’s not forget… prayer catches up with everything the words delay…
