What would Christ do? Our Pope Francis recently stated that if his holiness’ hypothetical best friend insulted his own earthly mother, he would “punch him in the nose,” a feeling we all resonate with at gut level.
If someone had insulted his mother, our lady Mary, however, surely our Lord would not have struck the offending human but would have offered his other cheek.
Being mere mortals, we can just cuss out the jerk who would try to put down our mum. Remember the playground ethos: No hitting.
