Let's reflect after Osama death

Published 09/05/2011

The death of Osama bin Laden should not be an occasion for rejoicing, but rather serve as an opportunity to reflect seriously on death and the responsibility we all have before God and man.

Bin Laden was gravely responsible for sowing seeds of division and for promoting hatred and violence in the name of religion.

But how often do others do the same - even to the extent of murdering their own flesh and blood through abortion - in the name of personal selfishness and greed?

This should be an occasion for us all to analyse our own weaknesses and prejudices. Ultimately, there can be no world peace unless there is soul peace.
