There was a huge white supremacist march in Charlottesville, VA today. Counter protesters showed up, and someone drove a car into them. At least one of them is dead, and at least 19 are injured. The governor has declared a state of emergency.
These are the only words that feel appropriate right now: “The Mother of God stands weeping beneath the Cross…. She sheds many tears as she gazes on the face of her tortured Son. With devout mouth she kisses the red wounds of Jesus; with both arms she clasps His shoulders and sides.”
