Seek Peace And Pursue It

5th Sunday after Pentecost 2017

The season after Pentecost is the time for sanctity.  We should grow in love of God and of neighbor (which is the measure of love of God).  Today’s Mass warns against the obstacle that anger presents in accomplishing this goal. Although a natural passion, anger easily becomes inordinate and sinful because of the effects of original sin.  Combating the first motions of anger will turn us from this vice and then we should turn to prayer instead and gain the peace that comes from a holy life.
