Let us be honest with ourselves—we are angry. A cursory review of social media substantiates this.
There is a limitless list of reasons why we are angry. We can point to COVID-19, economic hardship, politics, Church scandals, and theological grievances. We might be angry over less big-picture concerns, including strife among family members, friends, and neighbors.
But we should not allow anger in itself to be an occasion for concern, nor does it warrant an immediate need to visit the confessional.
