Senseless

Along with so many people, I am saddened by the murder of Brother Roger, and by the unwarranted attack that killed him. I can't even pretend to explain the source of such violence, other than stemming from the presence of an evil in this world that is as beyond my comprehension as the goodness of God.

And so I pray-- for the soul of Brother Roger, and for those who shared his community; for the untold numbers who've had their faith strengthened under his/their influence; and for the person who committed this act, also the victim of this evil as any perpetrator is.
