Quiet Reflection Sunday

praying for the people of France

praying for the world at large

It seems to me that we are fighting WW III.
Not in the style of previous world wars, but 
rather a  different kind of war. A war of hatred
and injustice. A global war of intolerance.

There is nothing new about religious war, but
this has an edge that is different. This is not just
about land or my faith is better than yours.

I truly don't know how it can be stopped.
I am normally an optimist, but this has me
stumped. They say it starts at home, but when
our children are being taught hate, how can we
hope for a brighter tomorrow?

Normally I don't write about negative issues, 
but everyone needs to talk so we can all find
a solution.

Does anyone have ideas or solutions?
I would love to hear, brainstorming is a good
way to solve problems.


  1. don't think there's just one answer. it seems like it's a combination of things.these young people who are being radicalized seem to have become disillusioned with life and are seeking some adventure and purpose without fully realizing what they are doing. how does one prevent the young mind from going in this direction....seems one way is to make sure that every one is treated with respect and not made to feel like an outcast which might send them seeking this kind of activity. i just don't know.....

  2. I have no idea what the answer is, but there is so much evil in this world. I fear for my grandson.
    Hugs :)

  3. "If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves and pray..."
    Is there a solution? I don't know. This is tricky to comment on. Our world is scary, that's for sure.

  4. I think we have to keep fighting back with love and hope and not give into fear and hopelessness... but you are right... the world is scary right now.
