Where Was God?
For important information regarding arrangements for Deacon Rich Johnston
please go to the end of this note.
It seems to be happening with a sobering repetition: the face of evil in our world so close to home. Once again we ask: "Why?" Many of us at the same time ask: "Where is God that He lets this happen?" These inevitably lead to another question: "Can we ever find peace again?"
Franciscan Father Pat McCloskey takes on those tough questions.
Perhaps this short (2:45 second) video, while not answering the questions - questions we probably won't not know the answer this life - it does give some thoughts to help.
