Pensamientos y Oraciones para nuestra comunidad en Boston

Categories

In these past few days many of us turned our attention to the Boston community in the midst of the marathon bombing. We expressed our prayers and condolences to the victims of the tragic violence that they suffered. We are always saddened at the tragic loss of life and our hearts go out to the victims and their families and friends. Both Pope Francis and Bishop William Murphy, our Bishop here in Long Island, offer the following exhortation that St. Paul gives the Roman Christian community as a reflection for moving forward: “Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good” (Rom.12:21). May we have the courage and strength to heal these tragic wounds with a goodness that Jon Sobrino reminds us can be “something conflictive and countercultural.”[1]
