Anger and prayer

February 16, 2014 9:07 pm

“…anyone who is angry with a brother will answer for it before the court…” (Mt 5:22)

God takes care of our relations.

Being “angry with a brother” could be the sign of my own vision for him. And my own expectations. It could be also a sign of injustice, but so often is a source of future vengeance (or a plan for it).

My brother, even weak and sinful, is God’s child and deserves respect, and always, especially when in need, needs my prayer.

Anger is not a solution. Rather a call for patience, calm and compassion.

“Be good to your servant, that I may live and keep your words. Open my eyes, that I may consider the wonders of your law.” (Ps 119, 17-18)
