BETTER TO SUFFER FOR DOING GOOD…..

IT IS BETTER TO SUFFER FOR DOING GOOD, IF THAT BE THE WILL OF GOD, THAN FOR DOING EVIL. (1 Pt 3:17)

Friday we remembered Saint John the Baptist.  John put his trust in the Word of God he had been sent to preach and not in the princes who he offended by his commitment to the truth.  He defeated the power of evil not by violence but by his self-surrender to God’s will.

PRAYER:  OH GOD OF HOPE AND GLORY, you sent John the Baptist to preach the Good News of salvation to those who received it with joy and to those who rejected its demands.  By his example and intercession, grant your Church courage in proclaiming and living the Gospel, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
