Lent Day 24: Wrath (Anger) While anger is a natural human emotion, occurring when one is denied, wronged or offended, it manifests itself in very destructive behaviors: Physical aggression & violence; verbal aggression; bullying; animal cruelty; blaming others for our own failures; road rage; excessive honking of horns; dirty looks; impatience; revenge;  passive aggression; ignoring or giving a cold shoulder. It can also be manifest at the societal level in vigilantism; terrorism; warfare; torture; political discourse designed to anger or offend. May we be slow to anger and quick to show compassion and love.
