When Life Seems Unjust, Seek Justice

Seek JusticeI don’t know about you, but I think there is a lot of injustices occurring these days. Of the many concerns impacting our society, we must seek justice regarding:

  • Abortion
  • Government corruption
  • Racial profiling
  • Unchecked prejudices against the vulnerable
  • Destruction of environmental protections
  • Disregard for the rule of law

I’m sure that you could add many line items to this list. The onslaught of these affronts against justice can seem overwhelming for anyone. Therefore, what can we do about it? How can any one of us seek justice in an unjust society?

How I Seek Justice

It’s just little old me. I’m just one person. Yet, I can have some impact, and you can as well. Perhaps you might want to join me. I seek justice, and by that, I mean God’s Justice, by reciting the Divine Mercy Chaplet daily. This is a powerful prayer asking for God’s mercy and forgiveness (for all the injustices caused by man). With my daily intention, I seek the revelation of God’s truth and justice, and that, we, as a society, do God’s Will. If we were to commit to joining together in prayer, we could storm Heaven with pleas for God’s intercession to help us get back on the right track.

I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything for which they are to pray, it shall be granted to them by my heavenly Father. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there I am in the midst of them (Matt 18:19-20).

How can we lose when given such an offer by Jesus? So, if we all would pray more for God’s truth and justice to be revealed and God’s Will to be done, we would have a far more just society. Please join with me, and seek justice through prayer.
