Fr. Thomas Colyandro
Rest Fights Anger and Renews the Spirit
Far too often, people despise those who pray. They hate that you live your life wanting only what God wants. Occasionally, they will get so mad at you that they will even want to take revenge against you.
You will, no doubt, get angry at these attacks. When this happens, find time to rest. It will help you to fight your own anger and renew your spirit.
Remember: "Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me" (Matthew 5:11).
