"Zeal for your house will consume me."
Anger & Forgiveness
If you have seen the film Unbroken (which I confess, I have not), or read the book upon which it is based (which I have) you have heard of Louis Zamperini. His story is absolutely incredible—crime, punishment, running, Olympics, heroism, war, survival, torture, captivity, rescue, love, depression, alcoholism, redemption—only begin to describe Unbroken! But this is not a movie or book review. Louis Zamperini's story has a great lesson to teach; a lesson in forgiveness that became the mission of Louis after he found Jesus and was able to forgive the men who tortured and nearly starved him to death.
In my homily this past weekend I talked of the vice of anger and the virtue of forgiveness. Check it out below.
