Life is meant to liberate a person from deceiving attempts to demean his/her human dignity in order to ensure protection of one’s human rights. Sometimes agitators do not seem to realize where or what they are agitating for. They say they fight for the rights of man yet in sequel to their acts come those riots where more and more victims are piled. Think that the first right of man is—life.
Will the acts of violence leading to bloodshed justify the cause for life’s defense? Such bloodletting in the name of justice is pure deception, revenge and victimizing. The sad thing about this is when protagonists are false prophets using the name of the Church, yet mouthing violence, anger and hate in their hearts. Just look at the victims. Is that justified?
The Spirit says: “Let not your anger reach sundown so as not to give the devil a chance to set a trap for you” (Eph. 4:26). May true peace reign in our hearts so that one’s life may follow in the footsteps of the Sacrificial Lamb, whose Blood was shed to restore Divine Justice and a reconciling spirit of dialogue for life in the whole of creation.
