Big moments on a national scale, particularly concerning the death of one who caused a great deal of pain. There has been celebration, relief, a sense of long deterred justice. The celebration part was brief for me, but relief and justice, those are things that might last.
And that is what I turn my face to. The need for justice is not over. Relief is still a need for many throughout this world, and comes only in small steps sometimes. Life does indeed go on, and searching for justice and relief will continue to be a large part of it.
So may we celebrate well, not just for death, but for life in the face of death.
In the peace and power of the Cross,
"Author of all creation, we go about our lives filled with frustration and often feeling lost. Culture wants to point us down one path, yet we know there is a better road to follow. Instill in us a desire to turn to you first; to delve into your teachings; to not only read your laws on an intellectual level but to take them into our hearts. If we choose to live our lives according to your ways, we need never fear getting lost. Amen."
