Cry with Me and Let Us Pray for Respect for Life in our Country08-11-2019Fr. Robert Seraph Aliunzi, AJ
Nothing has occupied my mind more, since last Sunday, than when in a spate of less than twenty-four hours that day, at least twenty-nine bodies lay lifeless and scores of others left wounded, when heartless shooters unleashed lethal bullets on them in Texas and Ohio. May the souls of the dead rest in eternal peace and may those wounded be healed soon.
First, I must admit that I become very emotional and occasionally cry when I discover that a fellow human being, or indeed a living creature, is unnecessarily deprived of life, tortured or denied justice. Or, when vulnerable orphans, children or elderly people are tortured and denied the basics of life simply because they have no one to protect them. I cried when I watched on Television Pope John Paul II shot, just as I cried when I read about Nelson Mandela and his life imprisonment and also watched when he was released from Robin Island. I cried when Idi Amin was overthrown because of joy and when Joseph Kony a brutal rebel leader in Uganda (who abducted over twenty thousand children and made the young girls sex slaves and young boys, soldiers), was chased out of Uganda. Also, I have always been moved to tears when watching epic films such as, "The Man of all Seasons," "Surviving the Holocaust," and "Jesus of Nazareth."READ MORE
