I believe that there is an order to the universe, and it is not man-made. I believe that we can make things better or screw things up, but that God is in charge. It is He who makes nations rise and nations fall. We have enemies, but we are either protected by God or not. It is up to Him.
Nothing we do is without consequences. But I am not in charge.
There is comfort in this. To me.
Tomorrow I will go to mass and rosary on my way to work.
Do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground without your Father's will. But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows. So every one who acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven; but whoever denies me before men, I will also deny before my Father who is in heaven. -- Matthew 10:28-33
