The Lord Mighty In Battle

Why does Christ allow evil? To increase His own suffering on the cross which He then offers up unto the remission of that same evil. This is how He turns the other cheek. He does not rebel against the evil nor does passively let it continue. He endures it as a penance unto its own remission. It is truly an awesome sight to behold the Lord running circles around the devil in such a manner. This is something to keep in the front of our heads as we soldier on this Lent.
