When we awake to the news of yet another mass shooting, bombing, or attack, our society often reacts with fear and anger. Instead, Bishop Wall suggests we should look to our faith to guide us. Faith is not a guarantee that we will be protected from harm; rather, it helps us to seek justice, find forgiveness, and live without being ruled by fear.
