“An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.....”
“The Holy Spirit sometimes calls upon us to transcend the logic of fairness and simple justice for.others.” Fr. Jacques Philippe, The Eight Doors to the Kingdom: Meditations on the Beatitudes, p. 114.
There is a lot of anger permeating our culture nowadays: name-calling, bullying, hotheadedness. We all need to learn about meekness and do away with vengeance. Meekness is the way to soften the hardness of hearts. It opens our hearts to God’s grace of healing, and it is only through prayer that all of these will happen.
Let us ask Mama Mary, as the Immaculate Healer of Hearts to teach us to be meek and humble.
