RESPONDING TO EVIL WITH GOOD – ‘The word of the Cross is the answer which Christians offer in the face of evil, the evil that continues to work in us & around us; Christians must respond to evil with good, taking the cross upon themselves as Jesus did’ – Pope Francis. Reflection – meditate for a moment on the love Jesus demonstrated on the Cross. So many people showed Jesus hatred & contempt, & yet he responds with love. What evil is God asking you to respond to with good?
