The tragic event in Las Vegas on the first evening of October 2017 has left a dark and obscene image of evil in the hearts and minds of many.  Those that were there and survived have been left with wounds that will not heal without the power of God's grace and the Holy Spirit.  Those that have lost loved ones are especially in need of God’s grace and love.    For some no doubt, their faith will be tested as they half masttry to reason through this senseless violent act.  They are especially in need of our prayers.

 

I pray that our leaders will find common ground and create something positive from this tragedy.   Putting God first in our life, makes common ground easy to find and I hope and pray that our leaders remember we are created to love God with all our heart, mind, and soul and love our neighbors as we love ourselves.  We are created to glorify God in all we do.  This is our common ground. 

 

May we all pray that whatever comes from this senseless tragedy will do nothing less than glorify our loving Creator and bring us all closer to the realization that we are created to love God, love one another, and glorify God in all that we do.

 

May God's light will shine through the darkness this tragedy has cast over us all. 

 

 Fr. Mark
