Fr. Mike explains why Joel would say that there are appointed times for war, even within God’s plan. In a broken world, we will sometimes be called to fight the brokenness that surrounds us, but we must believe that God is allowing this not because he likes the war, but because something better will come in its place. Today’s readings are Isaiah 16-17, Joel 3 and Proverbs 10:21-24.
