If someone forces you to go one mile, go with him for a second mile.  – Mt 5:41

Reflection. Bearing wrongs patiently goes with the challenge of love.  Getting even is not permitted.  The words of the crucified Christ echo down from His Cross:  “Father, forgive them for they do not know what they are doing” (Lk 23:34).

Prayer. Dear Jesus, You are my defender and guardian.  You are my shield in the battle of life.  In You I put my trust.
