Psalm 22:1 – Richard Bruxvoort Colligan

April 16, 2020

’My God, why have you abandoned me?’ is a strange way to begin a prayer if one truly feels God isn’t there. How can a prayer of desolation be a sign and signal of both God’s absence and presence? To pray Psalm 22.1 is to pray with Jesus Christ in solidarity with the suffering of the world.”
