What Is Normal?

Ordinary Time – Season of Stability

Normal, what’s normal?

I certainly don’t know. There is so much violence and abuse in our world, in homes, that that would appear to be normal. Physical abuse, mental abuse, emotional abuse, spiritual abuse.

Greed and corruption is everywhere. Waste of the good things God has given us abounds. Destruction of this good earth.

Normal . . . maybe, but not right.

There can be another way.

You have heard the commandment, “An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.” But what I say to you is: offer no resistance to injury. When a person strikes you on the right cheek, turn and over him the other.   Matthew 5:38-39
