RESPONDING TO EVIL WITH GOOD – ‘The word of the Cross is the answer which Christians offer in     the face of evil, the evil that continues to work in us & around us; Christians     must respond to evil with good, taking the cross upon themselves as Jesus     did’ – Pope Francis.  Reflection – meditate for a moment     on the love Jesus demonstrated on the Cross.  So many people showed Jesus hatred &     contempt, & yet he responds with love.      What evil is God asking you to respond to with good?
