Lament and tears at God's hands

Sometimes we ask ourselves why events as yesterday in Virginia happen.
Certainly there are not rational answers for that. We live in difficult times. Each of us are in risk to face a tragedy. In the altar of our society, it seems that many innocents will continue to be sacrificed.
Only a strong emphasis in a peace culture would be a didactic way to overcome the violence. Policies of disarmament are so needed to be adopted by governments. In any corner of USA people are free to buy guns and this is one of the stimulate way to see scenes as yesterday.
Looking for this catastrophe we can be convinced how the human being is able to manifest its unconscious shadow, specially in a middle of a materialistic society that no is aware of spiritual needs. The consumption and materialism transform the people in sterilized souls, disconnected from love and compassion.
My heart is going to be with our brothers and sisters in USA. I pray for each family that is crying their pain. Nothing is sufficient to console them, but our God is a God that takes us in his arms with tenderness.
Receive my prayers and solidarity. We can pray together as the psalmist:
“God, record our lament, list my tears on your scroll – are they not in your record?” Psalm 56:8


John disse…
My brother, your words of solidarity mean a great deal to those of us in the USA who are grieving and also asking why our culture has produced such a fascination with violence and death.
Tripp Hudgins disse…
Peace and all good things to you, sir. This is gentle and, I pray, true. My wife is a graduate of Virginia Tech as is my brother. This has hit us very close to home.
Frank Kajfes Ottawa Canada disse…
I will refer all to the words of UBI CARITAS by Maurice Durufle . . . the words say it all:

Ubi caritas et amor [where there is charity and love] Deus ibi est [God is there].
Congregavit nos in unam Christi amor [The love of Christ has gathered us together]. Exultemus et in ipso jucundemur [Let us rejoice and be glad in it]. Timeamus et amemus Deum vivum, et ex corde diligamous nos sincero [Let us revere and love the living God and from a sincere heart love one another].
