UNPrayerService2017UNPrayerService2017bThe annual UN prayer service, ahead of the opening of the 72nd Session of ┬áthe United Nations General Assembly, was held Monday at the Church of the Holy Family in NYC — presented by the Permanent Observer Mission of the Holy See to the United Nations. His Excellency Mr. Antonio Guterres, Secretary General of the United Nations, and His Excellency Mr. Miroslav Lajcak, President of the Seventy-Second Session of the General Assembly were in attendance and spoke, along with representatives from various religious denominations.

The United Nations has long sought to partner with faith communities as it works to “make the world a better place.” Problems arise when those seeking to make the world a better place, including faith communities, act in ways that generate the wrath of Heavenly Father rather than His mercy.

Real progress for humanity, including world peace, requires that man’s designs be in accord with God’s will.

Irma-Nasa
From the place where he dwells he gazes
on all the dwellers on the earth,
he who shapes the hearts of them all
and considers all their deeds.
Psalm 32

One shouldn’t understate the role of Providence in the creation of the awesome hurricane Irma, nor the power of prayer in appealing to Providence to alter its course and reduce its severity.

Fire&FuryPresident Trump’s incendiary rhetoric and immature policies toward Korea (North and South) seem also intended to shore up his precarious position at home, by assuaging and gaining sympathy from his many opponents on the left and right. A similar miscalculation was made in 1914 by the weak and despised Tzar Nicholas II of Russia — leading him to go to war with Germany and the Austro-Hungarian Empire, in the hope of uniting his country — which didn’t end well for Russia, the Tzar, or the world.

A better approach would be for the U.S. to help North and South Korea reunite.

LiveAmmoWould that Mr. Trump reached across the table of the G-20 meeting, with every fiber of his being, and offered that the U.S. lead the world in disarmament, while at the same time advocating for the reunification of Korea, as concrete ways to grow the world’s prosperity and improve the environment.
