March 18 – Saint Cyril of Jerusalem
Cyril was born in 315, when a new era was starting for Christians, since the emperor Constantine recognized that same year Christianity as a legal religion. But, even though physical persecution had finished, there were serious problems inside the church, by the heresies that had spread out. Cyril was chosen as bishop of Jerusalem. He confronted all the external problems and internal errors with calm and serenity, maintaining his meekness and goodness to all. He was heroic in his defense in the truth of Jesus and the Church.
Do you easily lose your calm when you perceive a person in your surroundings who is wrong in his/her opinions or positions? How do you confront that conflict? Are you capable of speaking with gentleness and goodness?
