“Jesus said to his disciples: ‘You have heard that it was said, An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. But I say to you, offer no resistance to one who is evil.”
Recall Martin Luther King, Jr., Bishop Oscar Romero, St. Teresa of Calcutta, Ghandi and Nelson Mandella. How must they have lived this injunction of Jesus.
How can one of them be an inspiration for you when you might be tempted to “get even?”
What about when our nation’s leaders feel the need to “get even”?
Heritage word—“Enlarge your heart, and do not be despondent.”
(St. Julie Billiart, Spiritual Mother of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
