January 17 -
We are all exhausted by Breaking News and political wrangling. But as Christians, we can't stop caring, throw up our hands and say "whatever".
This week has numerous memorials that highlight injustice and gaps in achieving a just society. Prejudice still flourishes as we remember the birthday of Martin Luther King. Abortions continue among the poorest and most vulnerable women as we mark the Roe v Wade decision. Divisions still separate Christian denominations as we honor years of promoting unity. There is much to do, in addition to praying.
"If you want peace, work for justice." Pope Paul VI
