Mass Shooting in Las Vegas

When humanity is falling apart!

What is the cause of the Las Vegas Massacre? Where have we failed?
The inconceivable has happened: Bullets are flying and people are dying, but no-one knows why! Will we ever figure out what is happening to us? Is this just plain evil as brought about by hatred, bigotry, or any other one of our vices, or is it simply the result of our accumulated sicknesses brought about by our broken upbringings and the social stresses we are experiencing? Modern man is a result, after all, of our modern society where boundaries have been removed, and the virtues have only to do with material success, pursuit of our own “happiness” and fulfillment of our selfish desires. Perhaps this is where we will find the source of our failure.

Listen to Fr. Panayiotis’ Sermon on the Las Vegas Shooter and what we can do about it:

Let’s hope that what happened in Vegas will stay in Vegas
