Aquinas: bearing wrongs, right and wrong

Thursday, January 28, 2016
    Feast of Thomas Aquinas, Priest, Teacher of the Faith, 1274
    The chief priests accused him of many things. So again Pilate asked him, “Aren’t you going to answer? See how many things they are accusing you of.” But Jesus still made no reply, and Pilate was amazed.
    —Mark 15:3-5 (NIV)
    To bear with patience wrongs done to oneself is a mark of perfection, but to bear with patience wrongs done to someone else is a mark of imperfection and even of actual sin.
    ... Thomas Aquinas (1225?-1274)
    See also Mark 15:3-5; Isa. 53:7; Acts 7:22-24; 1 Cor. 6:7; 1 Pet. 2:19-20
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, make me sensitive to the suffering of others.
