Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn said:

“…gradually it was disclosed to me that the line separating good and evil
passes not through states, nor between classes, nor between political parties –
bur right through every human heart and through all human hearts…It is
impossible to expel evil from the world in its entirety, but it is
possible to constrict it within each person.”

 

In other words if we can absorb injustice…if we can stop the
ever circling spiral of bitterness, hatred, and scorn…if we can forgive from
the knowledge of our own forgiveness… “Forgive us our trespasses Lord, as we
forgive those who trespass against us…”
There is a channel of God’s grace running through us branching out to
everyone around.’’

Peace

Jim
