“‘What!’ they exclaimed, ‘You are steeped in sin from your birth, and you are giving us lectures?’ With that they threw him out bodily.”
How would you feel if someone accused you of being “steeped in sin from your birth”?
How would you react or respond?
To respond with nonviolence, be proactive and know yourself to be known and loved by God who created you as you are.
Heritage word—“When you fall, examine before the good God in a spirit of peace and tranquility what you have done that may have displeased him. Ask the good God’s pardon for it as soon as possible, and that is the end of it.”
(St. Julie Billiart, Spiritual Mother of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
