Day 4: Anger
“All quarrels, disagreements, wars, strifes, and dissensions begin with a false declaration of independence--independence from God and independence from fellowman. A man without God is not like a cake without raisins; he is like the cake without the flour and milk; he lacks the essential ingredients of happiness.” Archbishop Fulton Sheen
“By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another."
In our defense of truth, do we have a tendency to cut off love at the kneecaps? We must never forget that the enemy we are fighting is not our brother. His soul is the prize to be won, and yet we can never lose sight that it is God who woos, God who wins, and God who claims the prize for the sake of Love alone.
We may disagree with one another, but we still need one another.
When in doubt, close your mouth and pray.
Please join me now in praying the Divine Mercy Chaplet for the intentions of the Holy Father as well as the intentions of all those attending this conference. The chaplet concludes:
Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
