Listening to the news this morning. Hearing of the carnage on the streets of Paris, I weep! I weep for those killed and for their loved ones now plunged into the dark area of mourning. I weep for the young and the old, those killed indiscriminately on the streets and for the loved ones they have left behind.
But what I weep for most is God.
All of this killing, all these acts of brutality are being done in His name!
My God , their God....the same God for us all and they kill us as we kill them in His name...
My tears fall as I pray....because there is only one God and He/She must also be weeping for frail humanity too.
Lord, hear our prayer!
