It's been a bad weekend newswise, with staff and children mowed down in an American School. I look around and see terminal illness, depression and sadness. I am entrusted with proclaiming Good News.
All I can say is "Emmanuel", God with us. God's middle name is 'with'.
God is with us whatever befalls, whatever we need to go through. God is there, comforting, healing, making all things new.
Today's readings were from Zephenia proclaiming hope in the ruins of Jerusalem, and from Paul on death row. Rejoice, they said. Emmanuel. God is with us.
God's middle name is 'with'. Maybe we can live with that. Rejoice then.
