I suppose that we could consider most deaths some form of evil, except that death must naturally follow life. But some deaths are due directly to the evil in human hearts. My This Day in History email provides a heartbreaking example. March 25, 1911, in New York City, 145 factory workers died because of sweatshop working conditions, including locked doors to prevent employee theft. A fire broke out, and those who weren't burned alive fell to their deaths by jumping out of windows or down elevator shafts.
God, forgive the greed that would allow--and even cause--the suffering of workers. On this day of Lent, I pray for all who must work for low wages in desperate conditions. Lord, have mercy. Christ have mercy, Lord have mercy. Amen.
