06-13-16 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

June 13, 2016
(St. Anthony of Padua, Priest and Doctor of the Church)
Jesus said to his disciples: “You have heard that it was said,
‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’  But I say to you, offer no resistance to one who is evil.” Mt_5:38-42

Just reminded me of another quote I read a couple days ago from St. Paul’s letter to the Romans:
If possible, on your part, live at peace with all.  Beloved, do not look for revenge but leave room for the wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.”  Rather, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink . . . ”   Do not be conquered by evil but conquer evil with good. Rom_12:18-21

Love Conquers!
