Conference On The
First Friday of October 2014
Scandal is one of the greatest sins against charity. Christ expects us to do whatever it takes to avoid occasions of sin, even if the separation from these things is painful. Christ was not only referring to children when He speaks of scandal given to the “little ones.” He was speaking about all those who are innocent and poor in spirit. Scandal is a word or act that is evil or appears to be evil that leads others into sin. Scandal does not cause a person to sin but leads them to it. We should strive for the spiritual childhood promoted by the Little Flower.
