"...evil may be not seeing well enough, so perhaps to become less evil we need only to see more, see what we didn't see before..." (Corita Kent, Footnotes And Headlines: a play-pray book)

Day Four: Changed by the Lord's Victory over Evil
Overcome evil with good (Romans 12:21)

This day takes us deeper into the struggles against evil. Victory in Christ is an overcoming of all that damages God's creation, and keeps us apart from one another. In Jesus we are called to share in this new life, struggling with him against what is wrong in our world, with renewed confidence and with a delight in what is good. In our divisions we cannot be strong enough to overcome evil in our times.

Where do we see evil in our own lives?

In what way can our faith in Christ help us to overcome evil and the Evil One?

What can we learn from situations in our community where division has given way to reconciliation?
