Lord, have mercy
At least 300 children are among the more than 1,000 Palestinians who have died since Israel began to bombard the Gaza Strip on December 27.
Julian of Norwich noted that "Our high God, the sovereign wisdom of all, arrayed himself in this low place and made himself entirely ready in our poor flesh in order to do the service and the office of motherhood himself in all things." I cannot imagine anything but a mother's heart breaking, as God's beloved children slaughter children in the name of protecting children. Hamas is wrong. Israel is wrong. How can anyone call this horror in any way justifiable?
