Carry a get-out-of-jail holy card
It’s a jail break! Paul and Silas, in the Acts of the Apostles, were arrested, beaten, and thrown into the clink by the authorities. But God caused an earthquake that sprung the doors of the prison and set the apostles free. Their first act was to comfort the jailer who was so upset by the escape that he was ready to kill himself. The jailer, moved by their kindness, brought them home with him, fed them, and bandaged their wounds. We, like the jailer, misjudge others and put them in prisons of our own self-righteousness. Let’s not wait for an earthquake to set them free.
Today’s readings: Acts 16:22-34; John 16:5-11 (292).
“When the Advocate comes, he will prove the world wrong about sin, righteousness, and judgment.”
