Thought for the Day – 11 April
Evil has to be confronted boldly whatever the consequences. Brave men like Saints John the Baptist, Thomas Becket, Thomas More and Stanislaus are a few of the prophets who dared to denounce corruption in high places. They followed in the footsteps of Jesus Himself, who pointed out the moral corruption in the religious leadership of His day. There is no longer little chance that we will face such corruption and take a stand in our modern world for evil surrounds us at every turn and so, it should be very clear, in the face of evil, where we stand! It is our moral duty – Christ, our Lord, can expect no less from us, risky or not, this is our duty – are we ready, willing and able?
St Stanislaus, pray for us!
