National Crime Victims’ Rights Week

By April 12, 2016Uncategorized

According to a brochure that I picked up at the Post Office on Monday, this week commemorates “National Crime Victims’ Rights Week” under the theme “Serving Victims, Building Trust, Restoring Hope.”  Jesus knew the victim’s experience.  Think of the words from the Good Friday cross: “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me.”  Before we go too quickly to Easter promises, we can remember that our God also knows the pain of the victim and reaches out to provide release.  The situation is complex but we followers of Jesus can indeed recognize the centuries long call to the faithful exactly to serve victims, build trust, and restore hope.
