Prayers for Boston with Oscar Romero

As the situation in Boston grips the nation, gun safety legislation fails, fires blaze due to lack of government regulation in West, Texas, and evils rock our world to its core this third week of April for many years — in this I turn to the words of a prophet, martyr, and saint for comfort:

“I assure you that today the holy suffering of so many that suffer unjust orphanhood is also a suffering that nourishes, that injects life, love of God, into this church this preaching hope, preaching that we must not despair, that days of justice must come, days in which God will triumph over human evil, over diabolical human wickedness.”

Monsenor Oscar Romero, December 1, 1977 from El Salvador
