NOT MY WORDS:
“In today’s Gospel, we see the Pharisees questioning the power that Christ displays before them. But Christ reiterates for them that His power is not demonic, for it is more powerful than that of the demons. His power is above and beyond anything they have ever seen and ever will see. He can and will overcome evil in whatever form it may appear.
Christ has told us: “In the world you have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33) It is easy to feel overwhelmed when we are witness to all the evil that makes an appearance in the world. But we must not lose hope, for Christ has overcome all.
It is good to take time to think on our sins and seek forgiveness during this Lenten season, but let us not become despondent about those that are a continual struggle. And, similarly, let us not lose hope concerning the suffering and evil we come face to face with daily.”
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.” -Hebrews 12:1
