Blind With Hate

In today’s gospel, Herodias blinded with hate and anger, turned her daughter into a murderer. Was she so filled with hate that she would use her daughter as an instrument of revenge? How did she live with this?

Let us step back and take stock. When in our lives have we been blinded with anger and hate? How have hate and senseless anger hindered us from becoming loving and compassionate individuals?

Mother Theresa of Calcutta once said, “Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.”
