Violence and deceit are not the answers to our troubles.
Our God is so good He knows exactly what we need.
As a civil society we can disagree with our leaders while obeying laws.
We can protest peacefully in agreement or disagreement.
We can differ on prudential judgement without ad hominem attacks.
Resorting to violence, suppression of free speech or character assaination are not acts of Love.
This verse is from today's readings at Mass:
Obey your leaders and defer to them, for they keep watch over you and will have to give an account, that they may fulfill their task with joy and not with sorrow, for that would be of no advantage to you. (Hebrews 13:17)
Patience, humility and love are required.
Our merciful Father is a God of Love, Truth, and Order.
Humilty requires us each to reflect on our actions. In our humanity we fail, as have I in my own exhuberance.
As a trusted friend stated, "Passions are running high."
Reflect and pray. Lent is coming.
God is good!
JMJ, pray for us,
