Providence, Part 3 – Crime

Especially pertinant today.

A Lawyer's Prayers

We continue our examination of God’s providence by turning to the subject of crime.

The victims of crime and their loved ones cry out to God for justice.  But, far too often, justice in this flawed world of ours is imperfect or delayed.

Depending on the crime, necessary proof may be difficult to come by.

A victim may not be able to identify his/her attacker or may not survive at all.  Witnesses may be intimidated or reluctant to come forward for other reasons.  Critical evidence may be lost or destroyed.  Perpetrators may relocate, or assume a new identity.  At times, the system, itself, is corrupt.

Yet, against all odds, impossibly “cold” cases are solved everyday.
