Justice shall flourish in his time, and fullness of peace for ever. Psalm 72

Why is it so difficult to sustain hope for peace and justice?

We live in an imperfect world. The weight of the great grief we experienced this week is a brutal reminder. How does one make sense out of violence inflicted on the innocent? There are no words except words of compassion and solidarity with the families. All we can do is sink into the Scripture of today and trust that justice will prevail in the end. Meanwhile, we surround the grieving with the healingĀ peace of Divine Physician.
