Re Psalm 137, May 28 Anno Domini 2020

Psalm 137 is one of the psalms assigned to the 28th day in the BCP’s 30-day cycle.

“Happy shall he be who takes your little ones,
and dashes them against the rock!”

This is the verse in the Psalter, perhaps in the entire Bible, that prompts the most soul-searching. How can this be in our Bible? Yet, as Caitlin Dickerson reports, in March-April of this year we deported 915 migrant children back to the violence from which they fled, sometimes without notifying their families, sometimes in the middle of the night.

Are we happy yet?
