“If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life maimed than with two hands to go into Gehenna, into the unquenchable fire. It is better for you to enter into life crippled than with two feet to be thrown into Gehenna.”
What does those words say to you?
Who among the martyrs reflects for you this degree of following Jesus?
Pray to that martyr for the grace to make a choice for Jesus today.
Heritage word—“The only way we can resist the temptation to react to violence with violence is to root ourselves deeply in the heart of Abba and to remain in a Presence larger than our own.”
(Sister Constance Marie, 10thProvincial of the Toledo Province)
