ALR215 – Devil in the Details

Lloyd discusses the parallels between the gun control movement and the national response to COVID-19 and the ways that numbers are manipulated to obscure the truth, and how the desire for security at all costs drives responses to both gun violence and the pandemic. At the same time it's Easter Sunday. As we huddle together in our lockdowns across the country, like the early disciples following Christ's death, let's remember this most holy of days and the promise of life everlasting that Jesus secured for us in his victory over death and the devil.

Prayer of the Week

We implore you, Almighty and merciful God, cause us who celebrate Your Pascal Feast, kindled with heavenly desires, ever to thirst for the Fountain of Life, Jesus Christ; through the same Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
