Where is outrage for slaughter of life’s most precious innocents?

As I reflect on the understandable outpouring of grief and rage over the recent horrific murder of a family of seven on the east side, I am struck by the relative absence of rage over the continuing slaughter of God’s precious innocents each week in our community’s abortion mills.

Without diminishing the tragedy of the recent killings—including three innocent children—it should be noted that the Indianapolis “abortion providers” murder some 10 to 20 times more innocent children every week of the year!

Where is the outrage?

-Dr. David A. Nealy, Greenwood

We are called to live lives of holiness

It is hard, sometimes, to live a life of holiness. We are all called to live a life of holiness, though.

This doesn’t mean you need to walk around with your hands together all the time, blessing everyone that you see.

No, a life of holiness simply means being spiritually connected with God, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

Also, you need to keep in touch with people. You need to spread the Word of God around—not just to Catholics or other Christians, but to the world. Shout it out loud and clear!

Then, and only then, you will be living a holy Christian lifestyle. And that is the most important lifestyle you can live.

Being that we are all guests in God’s wonderful and most beautiful universe, we should try our best to live up to the challenge of holiness.

-Justin Wedgewood, Mitchell
