Watch this video for the Gospel Daily Reflection for Saturday July 18, 2020.
God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. To become configured to be more like Jesus.
Jesus shows us that instead of cutting people down to carry out injustice, reach out to those who know their need for healing and forgiveness. Prayer should lead us to the depths of loving and serving others.
To do this, instead of taking action for justice Jesus first withdrew, as should we to address our own need for healing our own wounds.
Love is the only thing that can conquer hate, darkness, and intolerance.
hate for hate only intensifies the existence of hate and evil in the universe. . . . The strong person is the person who can cut off the chain of hate, the chain of evil. . . . and inject within the very structure of the universe that strong and powerful element of love.Martin Luther King
Thankfully God doesn’t cancel us, He redeems us.
