Atatürk Airport, Istanbul, suicide bombing and mass shooting...

Lord, have mercy.

Daesh have not yet claimed responsibility for the attacks, even though Turkey blames them. It's barely getting any news coverage in the US from what I've heard.

Two of the assailants had Russian passports. There's suspicion it may have been carried out by Chechen extremists, though why Chechens would be targeting Turkey isn't immediately clear to me, since Chechnya's beef is with Russia, not Turkey...

Today the nature of the waters is sanctified,
The Jordan bursts forth and turns back the flood of its streams,
Seeing the Master wash Himself.

To the voice of one crying in the wilderness,
Prepare ye the way of the Lord,
You came, O Lord, taking the form of a servant,
Asking for baptism though you have no sin.
The waters saw You and were afraid.
The Forerunner began to tremble and cried out, saying:
How shall the lampstand illumine the Light?
How shall the servant lay hands upon the Master?
Sanctify both me and the waters, O Savior,
Who takes away the sins of the world.

- Stikhera from the Great Blessing of the Waters at Theophany (the Baptism of the Lord)

I saw this on the news. I'm afraid that things like this no longer surprise me.
