"Do not abandon me in time of trouble, in the midst of storms and dangers." - Sirach 51:10
They say the pandemic is easing and the COVID threat is decreasing. They say that the inflationary pressure on the economy is reducing. They say that Ukraine is regaining ground in the conflict with Russia. They say that the number of mass shootings is improved over the past years. They say the US southern border is secure. They say that a rising number of Americans believe that the US is on the right track.
You feel great with all of this good news. Or at least you should. After all, that's what "they say."
But how should, or do, you feel? Do you feel like crying out, "God, where are you?" Do you feel like God has abandoned us? Do you feel like God doesn't care?
When the priest was asked about how to stop the mass shootings in the US and throughout the world, his reply was, "It's a simple but difficult question ... God help us."
Let us turn over all of our simple questions to a God who never abandons us in time of trouble, or in the midst of storms and dangers.
And let us pray: God, help us. Amen.
