This topic came up to me while I was doing my morning reading (while waiting for my mum doing grocery shopping in the market).

“If you ever feel that you’ve been treated unjustly, remember that Jesus was treated unjustly to the point of death on the Cross. You have to accept the punishment for love of Christ.”
~Fr. Harvey, 2008, “Called by Name”

Thus, I did Google search and found this passage from 1 Peter 2:18-23.

18* Slaves, be subject to your masters with all reverence, not only to those who are good and equitable but also to those who are perverse.

19 For whenever anyone bears the pain of unjust suffering because of consciousness of God, that is a grace.

20 But what credit is there if you are patient when beaten for doing wrong? But if you are patient when you suffer for doing what is good, this is a grace before God.

21 For to this you have been called, because Christ also suffered* for you, leaving you an example that you should follow in his footsteps.

22 “He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth.”*

23 When he was insulted, he returned no insult; when he suffered, he did not threaten; instead, he handed himself over to the one who judges justly.

In the end, it is very important to remember what Saint Francis de Sales believed as the most important virtue of Salesians’ way of life “Humility, Humility, and Humility”.
