Why Doesn't God Make Things Earier
Perhaps the most vexing faith-question of all-time is the problem of God’s silence and his seeming indifference: why does God allow evil? Why do bad things happen to good people? If there is an all-powerful and all-loving God, how do you explain that millions of innocent people can suffer and die under Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, in massacres in Rwanda, Algeria, and the recent terrorist killings in the USA? Where is God in all of this?
Come together to celebrate the 27th annual Worldwide Day of Prayer. The theme of the day is " Celebrating the Gifts of the Spiritual Journey, The Gift of Thomas Keating, and The Gift of Centering Prayer ."

We hear that Jesus offers us the Good News. What is the Good News, you ask? It is that you were born for greater things; Growing in Christ, this means that we increasingly open our hearts to receive Jesus’ love which is always present to us.
