Proof of his gentleness

March 20, 2015 7:12 am

“With revilement and torture let us put him to the test that we may have proof of his gentleness and try his patience.” (WIS 2: 19)

We know when a person is gentle or not. We like gentle people, and when we have an option, we prefer to meet with that kind of person, not with the opposite. Our Lord’s gentleness was put to the test “with revilement and torture… that we may have proof of his gentleness and his patience.” We need His gentleness absolutely, and we have to know that He will be, always andin any kind of situation, patient and gentle. We need it so much because the more we lose patience and gentleness, the more we need it.

“One does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes forth from the mouth of God.” (Gospel Acclamation)
