Spend a few minutes of silence and pray for all the victims of violence - Daily Bible Reflections August 4, 2016


NO TO VIOLENCE
 
And the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it. – Matthew 16:18
 
       ISIS, also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, spells terror, especially when you see photos of hooded men brandishing weapons at their captives, mostly religious minorities and Christians. There were even news reports that it has vowed to conquer Vatican as well and kill our beloved Pope Francis.
     On the domestic front, we also see endless violence, particularly between the military and the Muslim groups in Mindanao. Even in the metro, we hear of people killing each other due to road rage, domestic disputes and all other forms of senseless killings.
       As I write this, I heave a big sigh. When will all this violence stop? Where is respect for life? Where is fear of hell?
       But faith — that still, small voice within — tells me everything will be OK. God is in control. And while He may allow these things to take place, He is with all the victims of violence. The Church He founded will live on. His Kingdom will reign and dissipate all other kingdoms — not with violence but with love.
        And then all will be one. Tess V. Atienza
 
 
Reflection: Spend a few minutes of silence and pray for all the victims of violence.
 
Lord God, You are our King. You will not let evil triumph over this world.
 
St. John Vianney, priest, pray for us.
