The outward signs of anger and rebellion are inward signs of hatred toward self
"The earliest summons of a conscience is generally met with rebellion and resistance. Those who hate religion do so because of the evil in their life. When conscience begins to awaken, it exasperates into a more vicious rebellion. We become moral Laocoons, stung into a living martyrdom with the sting of the serpents of our guilt which lie in the bosom of our conscience. When remorse scourges us, the old ego becomes mad and even more violent than ever before. Temper flares, hatred of others multiplies as a projection of a disguised hatred of self, and a despondency seizes the soul from which no distraction gives relief. But all these violent outbursts against virtue are really nothing but the gathering of dark and angry clouds which one day will be dissolved in showers."
This is a time of drought, but we know God will provide in the way He sees best. If you are moved by the Holy Spirit to help The DAILY CATHOLIC financially, we are deeply grateful. You can help at Yes, I believe in what you're doing.
