Our Culture of Death
“It’s a good thing you were born at night. This world sure seems dark. I have a good eye for silver linings. But they seem dimmer lately.
These killings, Lord. These children, Lord. Innocence violated. Raw evil demonstrated.”
~ Max Lucado, A Christmas Prayer
After reading this report by NBC News, I could not help but cry.
As a Mother, I could place myself in each of those Parents’ shoes.
These words struck a nerve:
“It’s alarming, especially in Newtown, Connecticut, which we always thought was the safest place in America,” Stephen Delgiadice, father of an 8-year old little girl.
We have this tendency, or at least some of the people of the same mind as myself, to believe, naively, that things like this don’t happen here.
Here being practically anywhere. Work, School, Church, Mall, Store, Parking Lots, etc. Here being my reality and my foolish and selfish desires…
Heaven Help Us…
Two days ago we celebrated the Feast Day of Our Lady of Guadalupe, She once defeated the Culture of Death almost 500 years ago…may She Intercede for us now, in Our Culture of Death…
Please keep all the victims and their families in your Prayers ♥
And as Steven Ertelt from LifeNews.com states, “What everyone horrified and saddened by these shootings should do is take a moment to pray for a respect for human life and an appreciation of one another as human beings.”
