On Persecution

So muLove One Anotherch persecution in the world today. I recently reported an abusive Facebook page, constructed to demean a good man who stands strong in his convictions. Earlier, I tried to help a school that lost a child to suicide because of bullying. So much persecution in the world.

If persecution happens to you, please carefully note this: You have a weapon against the attempt to demean you. You have forgiveness at your side. Take up this weapon and see the other as wounded, as trying to hurt because he or she has been hurt by others. See that your love is stronger than any persecution you may face. How I wish the child who took her own life knew of this weapon against cruelty.

    This post gives me strength and confidence. The consequences of ignoring forgiveness can be severe when what has happened to us is severe. Forgiveness as a weapon is a powerful image.

    Thank you for the inspiring talk last evening at Harold’s Cross in Dublin. We indeed have a “weapon” against those who demean. Forgiveness is a powerful weapon and I plan to use it for good.
