Fr Terrance gives the homily at Bloomington, IN on Jan 07, 2022, where he continues his series on the Marks of Charity with the second mark which is Kindness.

Kindness is a divine attribute and why he created us, it is how we become like Him

And why God gives us grace and redemption

Kindness has converted more people than virtues

Fr. Faber, religious people are the most un charitable just like the Pharisees

Are we kind as well as devout?

Even being kind we can nod =o so in a kind way, add common kindness to our uncommon grades.

Kindness is not as insignificant as we tend to assume

Makes hardened hearts become soft

Reduces the number of sins in the world

Convicts people who ae unkind to us

Kindness is also a great encouragement to others

kindness helps others be kind and us to be kind to our selves

Kindness makes us humble and happy

takes off our harsh edge of our manners

Requires more strength than cruelty

Helps us make creation more like what God intended.
