The major world event going on right now (a war in Ukraine from a Russian invasion) might not sound like a topical post for something like the Daily Devotional among Esoteric Catholics...but here we are.
I haven't posted the last several days because there's been too much going on. Too much happening. And instead of beating myself up, instead of aw-pshawing the matter, I'm looking at it from the perspective that I'm in good company.
What comes to mind is that in any war, the people who most suffer are, as Jesus says, "the least of these." The commoners, the everyday people who are simply trying to live out their lives the best way they know how.
So let us have charity. Let us pray for the common people who want no part in this, who want peace, who want to live their own lives without harming others and without being harmed.
May God guide us. May the Queen of Heaven, the Blessed Virgin Mary move all to peace in their hearts.
