St. Therese of the Child Jesus – 

When Abraham Lincoln was criticized for being too courteous to his enemies and when he was reminded that it was his duty to destroy them, he gave the great answer: “Do I not destroy my enemies when I make them my friends.” When our passion for revenge matches the desire of James and John, we are called to remember and live out another passion: the passion of Christ for peace in the world.
