    @dogfish,
    I don’t think it’s supposed to end.
    but whether it does depends on one’s sanctification. For most of us humility ends sooner than later.

    but
    for Jesus,
    His humility didn’t end.

    He humbled himself to the point of death. Even death on a cross.

    Reading Philippians 2 reminds us how proud and defensive we are, and what God Himself showed us to be. St. Joseph is a good example. He followed God’s will, protected his family, did what he had to do, but is silent and humble in Scripture. Remember also when Peter sliced the ear off of the guard taking Jesus from the Garden?

    Do I live this virtue well? No.
    Is self-defense moral? Yes but it depends on circumstances.
    Is defense of family or an innocent moral? Yes.
    I think those acts are motivated by love not pride.

    Must I repeat myself?

    You could say I had issues getting comments to post today.
    Sorry everybody.

    soldier,
    Christianity is love, forgiveness and hope. God loves every sinner.
    Satan is despair and hate.

    No one is fooled by your comment.
    Sinners who seek Jesus’ help and mercy, will receive it. It’s the job of Jesus Church to bring that news to the world. No one is left out

    soldier,
    I won’t say you are no Christian, but nothing you said is a Christian belief.

    How would a Christian expect homosexuals to live a right lifestyle without Jesus’ help? Those who want to will need His Church (and sacraments). They are welcome in any church. It’s there they will hear Jesus in the Gospels say, “sin no more”.

    Your comment is full of despair and hate. Christianity, Jesus, is hope and love.

    @ultra,
    It’s a Catholic spirituality thing. Redemptive suffering. Father is trusting God to turn an evil into a good. Father Jon is probably praying for those men, too.

    soldieroffreedom,
    I don’t know what religion you are but what you have said is vile and the opposite of Christian teaching.

    ALL are welcome into Christ’s heart. He already loves everyone. Any homosexual attempting to live a pure sexual life is going to need the love of Jesus, His Church, and His Sacraments.

    Your words bring despair and hate. Christianity brings hope and peace.

    soldieroffreedom,
    I don’t know what religion you are but what you have said is about as unChristian as it comes. Westboro? Troll? Only you know, but your vile comments are the opposite of Christian teaching.

    ALL are welcome into Christ’s heart. He already loves everyone. As he told the adulteress, …sin no more.

    Any homosexual attempting to live a pure sexual life is going to need the love of Jesus, His Church, and His Sacraments.

    I hope your comment is removed, lest some homosexual looking for hope read it and think it is true, when your words speak of despair and hate not Jesus and Hope.

    It’s Catholic spirituality. Catholics are all shades of skin color.

    Pick up your cross daily.
    Today his cross was to be spit on for wearing the collar of Jesus’ Church.

    exactly, proliance.

    wig one..None of us “deserves” heaven, we all “deserve” worse.

  • [9] June 29, 2015 at 7:48am

    Look at it the other way, which of us “deserves” heaven?

  • [35] June 29, 2015 at 7:47am

    @reggie1
    You are making leaps in logic. Father doesn’t say it is okay to be spit on.
    He is just offering it to Christ, who was also spat on by sinners.

  • June 29, 2015 at 7:44am

    @Dogfish, its Christian humility and holiness. It’s knowing ones fallen nature and how offensive sin is, and what each of us deserves for hurting God and others the way we all do.

    @Dipsy
    Sin offends God more than we can understand. Fr. is saying, as a sinner, he deserves worse and is both turning the other cheek and offering this small suffering to God.

    (Furthermore, he is uniting his small suffering with the suffering of Christ, a redemptive act.)

    @Obie_Wan, in fact, Jesus made excuses for his persecutors.
    See @makingout’s Bible quote.

    May God forgive you for your words and may he bless you anyway.

    Pope Francis doesn’t sue every time he is slandered and libeled, but if he did, he could build countless hospitals with it. Every time the Holy Father is misquoted on the Blaze, I hope Glenn will personally fix it and write a retraction! That would be good, but doing research before publishing would be better.

    Catholics are knee deep in misreporting with no non-Catholic Christians doing a thing about it.

    You may wish to read the full context of his quote, not what the secular often anti-Catholic news reports.

    The sanctimoniousness and lack of charity I am reading is what gave Jesus his wounds.
    Shame on every one of you and may God have mercy on your souls.

    Or doctor, teacher….
