Rosangel Cabrera, Miguel Cabrera and Prayer for the Plague of Domestic Violence

Call it irony, or a sign that I should comment directly on Rosangel Cabrera, Miguel Cabrera and the plague of domestic violence. An hour ago I added a post about a woman I met in a coffee shop who died last Friday at the hands of her husband – a murder suicide. Check it out below. Now news comes across the wire that Miguel Cabrera, the Detroit Tigers slugger showed up at the game on Sunday with bruises on his face. Police reports reveal that officers arrived at the Cabrera’s home Saturday night responding to a call of “family trouble.” The complainant was Cabrera’s wife, Rosangel. Coincidence?


The prayer I offer at the end of the last post is pertinent for the Cabrera’s and the many others like them.  Yes, domestic violence is an epidemic. Let’s again pray for God’s peace in every home, especially those where fears and threats are all too common.
