We must care for, and pray for, each other
To the editor:
In the past few days there has been little else on the television or radio except coverage about the absolute carnage in Newtown, Conn. As a mom, a grandma and all the other female relationship names, I am devastated. But my soul is truly trouble by what is not being said.
You have heard of apparitions of the Blessed Virgin all over the world. She comes to urge humanity to pray and change, to follow the Lord, to be people of God. These mass shootings are an apparition of the devil. When our gentle, loving Virgin speaks, it is kind and humble. When these demons speak, innocent lives are lost. That strikes at our national core.
For me the answer is to get back to our roots of praising and acting like people of our Creator. Care for each other and pray for and with each other. Do whatever it takes to get those who do not embrace this concept to understand it. We have always had guns in this county, and we have many laws. Quite obviously they are not working.
When we soon come together to celebrate the birth of Christ, houses of worship will be overflowing with participants. Keep it up. You do not have to come to church every week, but it helps.
Do you have to eat every day? Then why not partake of time with the Lord who will feed you for eternity. We will all be better for it, and we may not have to say a tearful farewell to one of your loved ones because of a tragedy as we have seen too many times recently.
