Why, O God, have you cast us off forever?  Why does Your anger blaze forth against the sheep of Your pasture?  – Ps 74:1

Reflection.  The mystery of God’s silence, when tragedy strikes, is terribly disturbing for everyone.  But take heart, Jesus has come to establish justice.  Give Him time, and you will understand.  All will be well.

Prayer.  Dear Jesus, on the Cross You asked “Why?”  I know I am not greater than You.  Teach me to accept my perplexity graciously.
