Antidote to Evil: In today’s Gospel Jesus makes it quite clear how evil and good manifest themselves. Anyone who is for him is not evil. Giving in his name is a sign of goodness, the antithesis and antidote to evil. But he is strong in maintaining that evil gets its own results and we must sacrifice all to keep it away and bring goodness and sacrificial love to the fore in our lives as disciples.
