'Put Them Away'

St. John Chrysostom

But now you must put them all away: anger, fury, malice, slander, and obscene language out of your mouths.

- Colossians 3:8

While I'm not proud to admit it, there have been times in my life when I was angry with God. Surely, had he wanted to, God could've prevented what I perceived to be injustices. I have been angry that a loved one was taken from this life far too soon (in my opinion). I have questioned why babies are born addicted to drugs, suffering terribly as they go through withdrawal. I wonder why people who have clearly committed evil acts are seemingly rewarded.

With faith and some perspective, we can begin to understand that such anger is a byproduct of earthly logic. And yet, the anger can persist. Today, may we endeavor to do as our first reading encourages and put our anger, among other things, away, allowing ourselves to be renewed.

God of Justice, quell my anger and help me to trust that the only true justice is divine justice.

- Terence Hegarty

Amen. Thank you Holy Father for this day and for today's Gospel. Thank you Lord for my faith, my life and for my family. Thank you Holy Father most of all for your great sacrifice and for the opportunity of forgiveness and reconcilliation. Please Lord have mercy. Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ now and forever. Amen
