  • - Don't let anger control you.
  • 00:00:00.481 --> 00:00:03.284
  • Take a deep breath and relax.
  • 00:00:03.284 --> 00:00:07.155
  • (calm music)
  • 00:00:07.155 --> 00:00:09.524
  • Hi, I'm father Cedric Pisegna,

  • I'm so glad that youtuned into the program.
  • 00:00:21.002 --> 00:00:23.504
  • I am producing aseries, this series,
  • 00:00:23.504 --> 00:00:26.441
  • and I call it RealLife: Real Issues.
  • 00:00:26.441 --> 00:00:30.378
  • And I'm trying to get a grasp on
  • 00:00:30.378 --> 00:00:32.547
  • the different issues thatpeople are going through
  • 00:00:32.547 --> 00:00:34.582
  • such as impatience orloneliness or anxiety
  • 00:00:34.582 --> 00:00:39.587
  • and today's program, today'sepisode is about anger.
  • 00:00:40.988 --> 00:00:43.991
  • Let me read to you,this is from the letter
  • 00:00:43.991 --> 00:00:46.060
  • to the Ephesians.
  • 00:00:46.060 --> 00:00:47.562
  • This is chapter four and weread, this is Paul writing
  • 00:00:47.562 --> 00:00:52.166
  • and he says,
  • 00:00:52.166 --> 00:00:53.134
  • "Be angry but don't sin."
  • 00:00:53.134 --> 00:00:55.803
  • That's telling.
  • 00:00:55.803 --> 00:00:57.238
  • "Be angry but don't sin.
  • 00:00:57.238 --> 00:00:58.706
  • "Don't let the sun godown on your anger,
  • 00:00:58.706 --> 00:01:01.509
  • "don't give anyopportunity to the Devil."
  • 00:01:01.509 --> 00:01:04.579
  • The number one reason whymarriages fail, get this.
  • 00:01:04.579 --> 00:01:09.550
  • It's not money problems,it's not arguments
  • 00:01:10.651 --> 00:01:13.888
  • or lack of communicationper se or disagreements.
  • 00:01:13.888 --> 00:01:17.859
  • It's anger at each other.
  • 00:01:17.859 --> 00:01:20.561
  • They can't standthe way they are
  • 00:01:20.561 --> 00:01:22.430
  • or the way they're behaving.
  • 00:01:22.430 --> 00:01:24.565
  • They're upset witheach other so anger
  • 00:01:24.565 --> 00:01:28.002
  • is rampant inmarriages unfortunately
  • 00:01:28.002 --> 00:01:31.539
  • and it leads to alot of divorces.
  • 00:01:31.539 --> 00:01:33.508
  • Now as I'm filming this,there's a lot of anger
  • 00:01:33.508 --> 00:01:36.711
  • going on in our culturebecause of what just happened.
  • 00:01:36.711 --> 00:01:40.781
  • It happened sometimeback, we all remember
  • 00:01:40.781 --> 00:01:43.751
  • what happened with George Floydand he was murdered really,
  • 00:01:43.751 --> 00:01:48.756
  • by a policeman up inMinneapolis, Minnesota.
  • 00:01:49.891 --> 00:01:52.560
  • That led to protests,that led to people being,
  • 00:01:52.560 --> 00:01:57.565
  • not just angry, enraged.
  • 00:01:58.332 --> 00:02:00.201
  • Some unfortunately,some violence happened.
  • 00:02:00.201 --> 00:02:02.703
  • People got killed,talk about anger kills
  • 00:02:02.703 --> 00:02:05.573
  • and there was looting,there was all kinds of chaos
  • 00:02:05.573 --> 00:02:10.278
  • in our society.
  • 00:02:10.278 --> 00:02:12.013
  • So we all saw that on the news
  • 00:02:12.013 --> 00:02:14.015
  • and whatever side you stood on.
  • 00:02:14.015 --> 00:02:16.217
  • Whether it was againstracism and we all are,
  • 00:02:16.217 --> 00:02:21.222
  • or perhaps youwere for the police
  • 00:02:22.323 --> 00:02:24.125
  • and you were angry aboutwhat was happening.
  • 00:02:24.125 --> 00:02:27.195
  • Bottom line is, there was anger.
  • 00:02:27.195 --> 00:02:30.097
  • And then of course thepandemic and that caused
  • 00:02:30.097 --> 00:02:33.501
  • a lot of anger in ourculture and society.
  • 00:02:33.501 --> 00:02:36.504
  • I saw all kinds ofdifferent scenes happening.
  • 00:02:36.504 --> 00:02:40.074
  • For example, theMichigan State Capitol,
  • 00:02:40.074 --> 00:02:43.144
  • remember each stateopened at its own pace.
  • 00:02:43.144 --> 00:02:46.814
  • They all had theirown legislation
  • 00:02:46.814 --> 00:02:48.416
  • about what to doduring the pandemic.
  • 00:02:48.416 --> 00:02:50.718
  • Well Michigan had a lotof rules and regulations
  • 00:02:50.718 --> 00:02:53.754
  • about reopening.
  • 00:02:53.754 --> 00:02:55.523
  • Well at the MichiganState Capitol,
  • 00:02:55.523 --> 00:02:57.425
  • a man went in there legallyholding an assault rifle.
  • 00:02:57.425 --> 00:03:02.029
  • Talk about anger,then in another state,
  • 00:03:02.029 --> 00:03:05.900
  • I saw a woman whoowned a hair salon
  • 00:03:05.900 --> 00:03:09.537
  • who was locked up injail because she refused
  • 00:03:09.537 --> 00:03:12.240
  • to close her hair salon.
  • 00:03:12.240 --> 00:03:13.874
  • Subsequently she was released
  • 00:03:13.874 --> 00:03:15.977
  • but you could see theanger she had on her face.
  • 00:03:15.977 --> 00:03:19.180
  • Then I saw a woman all bloodied.
  • 00:03:19.180 --> 00:03:22.550
  • She was a salesperson in a store
  • 00:03:22.550 --> 00:03:25.753
  • who accosted somebody orat least told somebody
  • 00:03:25.753 --> 00:03:28.456
  • because they weren't wearinga mask during the pandemic
  • 00:03:28.456 --> 00:03:31.659
  • and she ended upgetting beat up.
  • 00:03:31.659 --> 00:03:33.995
  • And then of courseI saw a brave urse
  • 00:03:33.995 --> 00:03:36.697
  • standing there before theCapitol steps as this man
  • 00:03:36.697 --> 00:03:40.167
  • in a tattoo came against her
  • 00:03:40.167 --> 00:03:42.703
  • and railed at her and shewas basically standing there
  • 00:03:42.703 --> 00:03:47.141
  • peacefully and calmly whilethis guy was all angry
  • 00:03:47.141 --> 00:03:50.711
  • in her face.
  • 00:03:50.711 --> 00:03:52.179
  • So these were some of the imageswe had during the pandemic.
  • 00:03:52.179 --> 00:03:54.915
  • Our culture, our societyfull of rage and anger
  • 00:03:54.915 --> 00:03:59.920
  • and embittered becauseof what's going on.
  • 00:04:01.088 --> 00:04:03.024
  • Racism, the virus, pandemic.
  • 00:04:03.024 --> 00:04:07.328
  • All the differentfacets of society,
  • 00:04:07.328 --> 00:04:11.666
  • I'm thinking aboutpolitics right now.
  • 00:04:11.666 --> 00:04:14.335
  • I have never seena nation so divided
  • 00:04:14.335 --> 00:04:18.005
  • as with our politicalsituation right now.
  • 00:04:18.005 --> 00:04:21.442
  • Now whether you're a Democratic
  • 00:04:21.442 --> 00:04:23.344
  • or whether you're a Republicanor you're Independent
  • 00:04:23.344 --> 00:04:25.846
  • or maybe not even avoter, there's such anger.
  • 00:04:25.846 --> 00:04:28.649
  • If I were to tell you whatmy political leanings were,
  • 00:04:28.649 --> 00:04:32.553
  • half of you would donate
  • 00:04:32.553 --> 00:04:34.088
  • and the other half of youwould switch the channel.
  • 00:04:34.088 --> 00:04:37.091
  • So I understandthere's a lot of anger
  • 00:04:37.091 --> 00:04:39.293
  • about many different things.
  • 00:04:39.293 --> 00:04:41.862
  • I'm just trying to identify it
  • 00:04:41.862 --> 00:04:43.130
  • and try to get peoplein touch with it
  • 00:04:43.130 --> 00:04:46.033
  • and the bottom line is, is this.
  • 00:04:46.033 --> 00:04:48.536
  • Now I'm gonna say this inas strong way as I can.
  • 00:04:48.536 --> 00:04:51.405
  • Let me use my megaphone.
  • 00:04:51.405 --> 00:04:53.307
  • The world is imperfect.
  • 00:04:53.307 --> 00:04:56.444
  • There is trouble,you will not agree
  • 00:04:57.645 --> 00:05:01.082
  • with everything that'shappening in the world.
  • 00:05:01.082 --> 00:05:04.151
  • So in other worlds,one of the reasons why
  • 00:05:04.151 --> 00:05:06.754
  • people get angry isbecause of imperfection.
  • 00:05:06.754 --> 00:05:10.358
  • They're perfectionistic
  • 00:05:10.358 --> 00:05:11.625
  • and when they don'tget things their way,
  • 00:05:11.625 --> 00:05:14.161
  • they get all upset.
  • 00:05:14.161 --> 00:05:15.830
  • Another reason, theseare the roots of anger.
  • 00:05:15.830 --> 00:05:18.833
  • Another reason whypeople get angry
  • 00:05:18.833 --> 00:05:21.135
  • is because they grewup in an angry home.
  • 00:05:21.135 --> 00:05:24.805
  • I call that family of origin.
  • 00:05:24.805 --> 00:05:27.608
  • Their parents were angry,their relatives were angry.
  • 00:05:27.608 --> 00:05:30.478
  • They're just mimickingwhat they saw.
  • 00:05:30.478 --> 00:05:32.980
  • So you can get angry formany different reasons
  • 00:05:32.980 --> 00:05:35.883
  • and there's all kinds ofroots but the bottom line
  • 00:05:35.883 --> 00:05:38.018
  • is we all feel thatfeeling of frustration
  • 00:05:38.018 --> 00:05:41.722
  • when things don't go our way.
  • 00:05:41.722 --> 00:05:43.724
  • Whether it be because ofracism or other injustices.
  • 00:05:43.724 --> 00:05:48.028
  • Whether it be because ofthe pandemic or politics
  • 00:05:48.028 --> 00:05:51.599
  • or you name it, thingsaren't going right
  • 00:05:51.599 --> 00:05:53.601
  • in your own life.
  • 00:05:53.601 --> 00:05:55.069
  • So you have to understand,Paul writes this
  • 00:05:55.069 --> 00:05:58.873
  • in the letter to the Romans.
  • 00:05:58.873 --> 00:06:01.175
  • That creation wassubjected to futility.
  • 00:06:01.175 --> 00:06:05.780
  • I hope you get that.
  • 00:06:06.914 --> 00:06:07.948
  • Creation, God createdbut He subjected it,
  • 00:06:09.116 --> 00:06:13.754
  • didn't want it to bethis way originally.
  • 00:06:15.589 --> 00:06:17.458
  • Originally it was apleasure garden, Eden.
  • 00:06:17.458 --> 00:06:20.661
  • But when we sinned, hesubjected it to futility.
  • 00:06:20.661 --> 00:06:24.732
  • So what is futility?
  • 00:06:24.732 --> 00:06:27.401
  • Things don't go yourway, things don't happen
  • 00:06:27.401 --> 00:06:29.837
  • the way that youwant them to happen.
  • 00:06:29.837 --> 00:06:31.705
  • There were injustices,there was violence,
  • 00:06:31.705 --> 00:06:34.141
  • there's death,there's suffering.
  • 00:06:34.141 --> 00:06:36.243
  • Futility, we allare familiar with it
  • 00:06:36.243 --> 00:06:39.814
  • but one day, a newworld is coming.
  • 00:06:39.814 --> 00:06:43.851
  • But right now I justwant you to understand
  • 00:06:43.851 --> 00:06:46.420
  • that we are in a futile world
  • 00:06:46.420 --> 00:06:48.255
  • and things don't happenthe way we want to.
  • 00:06:48.255 --> 00:06:50.825
  • So the Bible tells us, allright be angry but don't sin
  • 00:06:50.825 --> 00:06:55.196
  • and this is a majorpoint I want you to get.
  • 00:06:55.196 --> 00:06:56.864
  • That was Ephesians 4:26.
  • 00:06:56.864 --> 00:06:59.266
  • Anger is not a sinin and of itself.
  • 00:06:59.266 --> 00:07:03.437
  • Anger is an emotion,it's energy.
  • 00:07:03.437 --> 00:07:07.074
  • Something that comes out of us.
  • 00:07:07.074 --> 00:07:09.009
  • Just because you're angryand you feel frustrated
  • 00:07:09.009 --> 00:07:11.145
  • you're not sinning.
  • 00:07:11.145 --> 00:07:12.947
  • So that's why the Biblesays be angry but don't sin
  • 00:07:12.947 --> 00:07:16.550
  • and here's whereit becomes sinful.
  • 00:07:16.550 --> 00:07:18.752
  • It's your response, yourreaction to the feeling,
  • 00:07:18.752 --> 00:07:22.256
  • to the emotion of anger.
  • 00:07:22.256 --> 00:07:23.724
  • That's why you gotta learnand this is what self control
  • 00:07:23.724 --> 00:07:26.794
  • is all about.
  • 00:07:26.794 --> 00:07:28.028
  • You gotta learn how tomanage your emotions
  • 00:07:28.028 --> 00:07:30.498
  • and if you're not ableto manage your anger,
  • 00:07:30.498 --> 00:07:32.199
  • you're gonna have problems.
  • 00:07:32.199 --> 00:07:33.434
  • I remember I watcheda movie years ago,
  • 00:07:33.434 --> 00:07:36.070
  • it was called"Anger Management".
  • 00:07:36.070 --> 00:07:38.239
  • It starred Jack Nicholsonand Adam Sandler
  • 00:07:38.239 --> 00:07:41.842
  • and it was hilariousbecause I remember one scene
  • 00:07:41.842 --> 00:07:45.112
  • when Jack Nicholson
  • 00:07:45.112 --> 00:07:46.380
  • got into a problem ona highway in New York.
  • 00:07:46.380 --> 00:07:49.049
  • People were passinghim yelling at him
  • 00:07:49.049 --> 00:07:51.785
  • because they made himstop right on the highway
  • 00:07:51.785 --> 00:07:54.021
  • and he had to be ableto handle his anger
  • 00:07:54.021 --> 00:07:55.956
  • and not strike backand it was hilarious
  • 00:07:55.956 --> 00:07:58.459
  • because we've all beenin traffic situations
  • 00:07:58.459 --> 00:08:00.794
  • where we get upsetand we get angry
  • 00:08:00.794 --> 00:08:03.297
  • and we have to manage our anger.
  • 00:08:03.297 --> 00:08:06.066
  • So that's the key, anger isa problem when you overreact.
  • 00:08:06.066 --> 00:08:11.005
  • When you feel thefeeling and you allow it
  • 00:08:13.841 --> 00:08:16.310
  • to make you abuse somebody thatyou love or start swearing.
  • 00:08:16.310 --> 00:08:21.315
  • If you ever wanna be angry,take up the sport of golf.
  • 00:08:22.750 --> 00:08:25.853
  • I've been an avid golfernow for many years
  • 00:08:25.853 --> 00:08:28.088
  • and I'll tell you,even the best golfers,
  • 00:08:28.088 --> 00:08:29.990
  • I'm talking the pros, they canbe playing at Pebble Beach,
  • 00:08:29.990 --> 00:08:33.360
  • the most beautiful placeand throwing their clubs
  • 00:08:33.360 --> 00:08:36.597
  • because the ball's not goingwhere they want it to go
  • 00:08:36.597 --> 00:08:40.034
  • and that's called futility.
  • 00:08:40.034 --> 00:08:42.469
  • So even the best ofgolfers feel that.
  • 00:08:42.469 --> 00:08:45.072
  • So be angry but sin not.
  • 00:08:45.072 --> 00:08:47.508
  • Don't let the sun godown on your anger.
  • 00:08:47.508 --> 00:08:50.811
  • You have to try to manage it.
  • 00:08:50.811 --> 00:08:52.279
  • I found out somethingabout anger.
  • 00:08:53.514 --> 00:08:55.149
  • Anger can actually leadto some good things.
  • 00:08:55.149 --> 00:08:58.752
  • For example, had aneighbor with a barking dog
  • 00:08:58.752 --> 00:09:03.757
  • and that dog wouldbark during the day.
  • 00:09:06.126 --> 00:09:09.730
  • Cute dog, I think it wasa Labrador or Retriever,
  • 00:09:09.730 --> 00:09:13.701
  • it was a black dog.
  • 00:09:13.701 --> 00:09:15.436
  • I kind of looked over thefence one day and I saw it.
  • 00:09:15.436 --> 00:09:18.272
  • Well the thing started barkingat five in the morning.
  • 00:09:18.272 --> 00:09:21.108
  • Five in the morning
  • 00:09:21.108 --> 00:09:22.509
  • I'm laying in bedhearing this dog barking.
  • 00:09:22.509 --> 00:09:24.211
  • So, I don't recommendthis but you know,
  • 00:09:24.211 --> 00:09:27.548
  • my anger, I was so upset.
  • 00:09:27.548 --> 00:09:30.317
  • I finally went overto the neighbors
  • 00:09:30.317 --> 00:09:32.152
  • and they don't know who weare and we don't know them
  • 00:09:32.152 --> 00:09:35.022
  • but I finally went over there.
  • 00:09:35.022 --> 00:09:36.523
  • This is what anger made me do.
  • 00:09:36.523 --> 00:09:38.258
  • But I went overthere in a nice way,
  • 00:09:38.258 --> 00:09:39.593
  • it was right before Christmas
  • 00:09:39.593 --> 00:09:41.495
  • and I took over some truffles,some chocolate truffles.
  • 00:09:41.495 --> 00:09:44.331
  • Maybe this will work ifyou're having a barking dog
  • 00:09:45.766 --> 00:09:47.668
  • and I took it over toher and I said hey,
  • 00:09:47.668 --> 00:09:49.570
  • I'm Father Cedric, niceto meet you and I go,
  • 00:09:49.570 --> 00:09:52.172
  • I wanna give you a littlegift and by the way,
  • 00:09:52.172 --> 00:09:53.907
  • I happened to notice that yourdog has been barking at four,
  • 00:09:53.907 --> 00:09:58.379
  • five o'clock in themorning and I'm sorry
  • 00:09:58.379 --> 00:10:00.247
  • I don't mean to be meanbut is there any way
  • 00:10:00.247 --> 00:10:02.516
  • you can kind of you know, becareful not to let your dog.
  • 00:10:02.516 --> 00:10:05.019
  • But anyway, long story short,
  • 00:10:05.019 --> 00:10:06.520
  • the dog doesn't bark atfive in the morning anymore.
  • 00:10:06.520 --> 00:10:09.556
  • He barks still butat more appropriate
  • 00:10:09.556 --> 00:10:11.525
  • times of day but mypoint is, it was my anger
  • 00:10:11.525 --> 00:10:15.696
  • that drove me to dosomething about my situation.
  • 00:10:15.696 --> 00:10:18.999
  • So anger can be good aslong as you're managing it
  • 00:10:18.999 --> 00:10:22.503
  • and not letting itdrive you crazy.
  • 00:10:22.503 --> 00:10:24.605
  • I think about how MothersAgainst Drunk Driving started,
  • 00:10:24.605 --> 00:10:28.642
  • MADD, another wordfor anger, mad.
  • 00:10:28.642 --> 00:10:31.779
  • This woman's daughter waskilled by a drunk driver
  • 00:10:33.213 --> 00:10:35.149
  • and instead of just raging andbeing all bent out of shape
  • 00:10:35.149 --> 00:10:40.154
  • all the time aboutit, this woman decided
  • 00:10:41.288 --> 00:10:43.290
  • to do something aboutit and she created
  • 00:10:43.290 --> 00:10:45.959
  • Mothers Against Drunk Driving
  • 00:10:45.959 --> 00:10:47.761
  • and because of her proactivity,because of her anger
  • 00:10:49.029 --> 00:10:53.167
  • channeled in a right way,
  • 00:10:53.167 --> 00:10:55.636
  • how many thousands of liveshave been saved by drunk drivers
  • 00:10:55.636 --> 00:10:59.740
  • because of the legislationthey've brought?
  • 00:10:59.740 --> 00:11:02.609
  • And they've donesuch good in society.
  • 00:11:02.609 --> 00:11:05.212
  • I got angry aboutmy weight and this,
  • 00:11:05.212 --> 00:11:08.115
  • this is another thingthat anger can do.
  • 00:11:08.115 --> 00:11:09.883
  • It can drive you to lose weight.
  • 00:11:09.883 --> 00:11:12.152
  • I was gaining weight andthen staying about the same.
  • 00:11:12.152 --> 00:11:15.522
  • No matter how much I workedout, I wasn't losing any weight.
  • 00:11:15.522 --> 00:11:18.358
  • Talked to a friend of mine andhe was talking about sugar.
  • 00:11:18.358 --> 00:11:20.728
  • How sugar, take,the sugar intake is,
  • 00:11:20.728 --> 00:11:24.431
  • when you take too much,it really messes up
  • 00:11:24.431 --> 00:11:26.700
  • with your system, I got angry
  • 00:11:26.700 --> 00:11:28.569
  • because I was addicted to sugar
  • 00:11:28.569 --> 00:11:31.105
  • and I was addicted toeating sugar every day,
  • 00:11:31.105 --> 00:11:33.407
  • a certain amount of it and mybody metabolism wasn't working
  • 00:11:33.407 --> 00:11:37.244
  • and I got so angryI cut out sugar.
  • 00:11:37.244 --> 00:11:40.214
  • It's amazing, Idropped 10 pounds.
  • 00:11:40.214 --> 00:11:43.984
  • I dropped 10 pounds and I didn'treally even work that hard
  • 00:11:43.984 --> 00:11:48.989
  • to do it.
  • 00:11:49.590 --> 00:11:50.190
  • So my point is, I'm nottrying to give diet lessons
  • 00:11:51.592 --> 00:11:54.995
  • and how you stop neighborhooddogs from barking.
  • 00:11:54.995 --> 00:11:57.731
  • I'm just trying to tell youabout how anger can drive you
  • 00:11:57.731 --> 00:12:01.502
  • to actually do a good thing.
  • 00:12:01.502 --> 00:12:02.703
  • So there's, it'snot, it's an emotion.
  • 00:12:02.703 --> 00:12:04.571
  • It's not necessarily bad,that's why the Bible say it's,
  • 00:12:04.571 --> 00:12:06.907
  • be angry but don't sin.
  • 00:12:06.907 --> 00:12:08.742
  • It's not a sin to be angry.
  • 00:12:09.877 --> 00:12:11.979
  • It is one of the seven deadlies
  • 00:12:11.979 --> 00:12:13.814
  • if you know anythingabout Catholicism.
  • 00:12:13.814 --> 00:12:15.883
  • Anger, envy, gluttony,
  • 00:12:16.817 --> 00:12:21.221
  • actually the word Ithink they use is wrath.
  • 00:12:21.221 --> 00:12:23.390
  • So it's one of theseven deadlies,
  • 00:12:23.390 --> 00:12:24.758
  • when we allow it todictate our actions.
  • 00:12:24.758 --> 00:12:29.062
  • So please be careful about that.
  • 00:12:29.062 --> 00:12:30.864
  • So let's talk a littlebit about anger.
  • 00:12:31.965 --> 00:12:34.168
  • As I said, the worldis not perfect.
  • 00:12:34.168 --> 00:12:36.503
  • It can be really frustratingand I live in community
  • 00:12:36.503 --> 00:12:40.007
  • and I know that.
  • 00:12:40.007 --> 00:12:41.475
  • When you live with people,people can get on your nerves
  • 00:12:41.475 --> 00:12:45.279
  • and get angry.
  • 00:12:45.279 --> 00:12:46.780
  • For example, there's one ofthe guys in our community,
  • 00:12:46.780 --> 00:12:48.182
  • I live in Houston, in acommunity about five, six guys.
  • 00:12:48.182 --> 00:12:51.952
  • And one of theguys, after eating
  • 00:12:53.086 --> 00:12:55.122
  • he doesn't clean up his plate.
  • 00:12:55.122 --> 00:12:57.491
  • He doesn't cleanup after eating.
  • 00:12:57.491 --> 00:12:59.827
  • And then he just leaves them.
  • 00:12:59.827 --> 00:13:02.029
  • Another guy leaves thelights on in the kitchen
  • 00:13:02.029 --> 00:13:03.730
  • all the time and I have to go by
  • 00:13:03.730 --> 00:13:05.065
  • and every time I gottaturn the lights off
  • 00:13:05.065 --> 00:13:06.900
  • and you know, tryingto save money,
  • 00:13:06.900 --> 00:13:09.036
  • trying to save money, tryingto save electricity, energy.
  • 00:13:09.036 --> 00:13:11.505
  • Then during the pandemic,
  • 00:13:11.505 --> 00:13:13.674
  • during the socialdistancing problems
  • 00:13:13.674 --> 00:13:16.677
  • we were told not to getwithin six feet of anybody.
  • 00:13:16.677 --> 00:13:19.613
  • One of our guys is out in theparking lot hugging people
  • 00:13:19.613 --> 00:13:23.050
  • and I see him and we go inand we have Mass together,
  • 00:13:23.050 --> 00:13:26.086
  • we share from the samecup and he's jeopardizing
  • 00:13:26.086 --> 00:13:28.889
  • the community somy point is that,
  • 00:13:28.889 --> 00:13:31.024
  • can't help but get angryat these different things.
  • 00:13:31.024 --> 00:13:33.760
  • And I find myselfwanting to go ahh.
  • 00:13:33.760 --> 00:13:35.596
  • So we all have people inour life that upset us
  • 00:13:36.830 --> 00:13:39.600
  • and make us angry andit's all different things.
  • 00:13:39.600 --> 00:13:42.703
  • So you have to be carefulabout how you handle things,
  • 00:13:42.703 --> 00:13:47.107
  • remember be angry but sinnot and what is anger?
  • 00:13:47.107 --> 00:13:52.112
  • Well, anger is a feeling.
  • 00:13:52.980 --> 00:13:55.482
  • As I said, it's an emotion.
  • 00:13:55.482 --> 00:13:57.651
  • It's energy, and it's afeeling of frustration
  • 00:13:57.651 --> 00:14:02.122
  • because things aren't rightand you know how water is.
  • 00:14:02.122 --> 00:14:06.360
  • You know water boilsat 212 degrees,
  • 00:14:06.360 --> 00:14:09.830
  • I think it was RalphWaldo Emerson said
  • 00:14:09.830 --> 00:14:13.634
  • that we all boil atdifferent degrees.
  • 00:14:13.634 --> 00:14:16.637
  • Water boils at 212but some people boil
  • 00:14:16.637 --> 00:14:19.973
  • with just a little frustration.
  • 00:14:19.973 --> 00:14:22.042
  • Other people, it takes alot of frustration to boil.
  • 00:14:22.042 --> 00:14:25.345
  • So what's your boiling point?
  • 00:14:25.345 --> 00:14:27.080
  • I heard about aroad rage incidence
  • 00:14:27.080 --> 00:14:29.516
  • in my home state ofMassachusetts where this man
  • 00:14:29.516 --> 00:14:31.785
  • got hooked up on a car.
  • 00:14:31.785 --> 00:14:33.553
  • It was a road rage andcould've got killed.
  • 00:14:33.553 --> 00:14:35.856
  • Remember what Isaid about the book.
  • 00:14:35.856 --> 00:14:37.557
  • There's a bookcalled "Anger Kills".
  • 00:14:37.557 --> 00:14:40.227
  • And the book is byWilliams and Williams,
  • 00:14:40.227 --> 00:14:42.663
  • it's a classic I think.
  • 00:14:42.663 --> 00:14:44.798
  • Anger kills and one ofthe ways that it kills
  • 00:14:44.798 --> 00:14:48.702
  • is by people killing eachother because they're angry
  • 00:14:48.702 --> 00:14:51.905
  • but they were talking aboutyour blood pressure goes up,
  • 00:14:51.905 --> 00:14:55.042
  • your stress level goes up.
  • 00:14:55.042 --> 00:14:57.377
  • You can get hardeningof the arteries.
  • 00:14:57.377 --> 00:15:01.081
  • You can get heart diseaseand all kinds of different
  • 00:15:01.081 --> 00:15:04.251
  • physiological reactionshappen in your body
  • 00:15:04.251 --> 00:15:06.620
  • because of anger.
  • 00:15:06.620 --> 00:15:07.921
  • So be careful notto stuff your anger
  • 00:15:07.921 --> 00:15:11.158
  • and be careful not to beconsumed by your anger,
  • 00:15:11.158 --> 00:15:13.560
  • it can eat you up.
  • 00:15:13.560 --> 00:15:14.761
  • Remember that songby Don Henley?
  • 00:15:14.761 --> 00:15:16.663
  • He had a song out andhe, he would sing,
  • 00:15:16.663 --> 00:15:19.766
  • don't let your angereat you up inside.
  • 00:15:19.766 --> 00:15:22.703
  • That's exactly what can happenand you gotta let it go,
  • 00:15:22.703 --> 00:15:25.706
  • you can't just letit possess you.
  • 00:15:25.706 --> 00:15:27.474
  • So I had an incident thathappened to me one time
  • 00:15:28.909 --> 00:15:31.111
  • that I just wantedto share with you,
  • 00:15:31.111 --> 00:15:32.379
  • it's kind of a humorousincident but, Kroger's.
  • 00:15:32.379 --> 00:15:37.284
  • It is a store, a grocery store
  • 00:15:38.151 --> 00:15:39.686
  • that we have rightnear our home.
  • 00:15:39.686 --> 00:15:41.722
  • Probably about two miles away.
  • 00:15:41.722 --> 00:15:43.857
  • So I went shoppingand I just wanted
  • 00:15:43.857 --> 00:15:46.093
  • to get a couple bananas andI wasn't dressed as a priest,
  • 00:15:46.093 --> 00:15:48.362
  • just dressed in myshorts and a golf shirt
  • 00:15:48.362 --> 00:15:50.931
  • and nobody knew who I wasand there I am in Kroger's.
  • 00:15:50.931 --> 00:15:53.533
  • I got a couple bananasand had some cookies,
  • 00:15:53.533 --> 00:15:56.436
  • maybe potato chips, whatever.
  • 00:15:56.436 --> 00:15:59.006
  • And I go to theself checkout line,
  • 00:15:59.006 --> 00:16:02.275
  • there are four little stations
  • 00:16:02.275 --> 00:16:04.411
  • where you can dothis self checkout.
  • 00:16:04.411 --> 00:16:06.013
  • Well it was really crowded,all four of them were taken
  • 00:16:06.013 --> 00:16:09.549
  • and I noticed thatthere was an elderly man
  • 00:16:09.549 --> 00:16:12.319
  • and a teenager standing there.
  • 00:16:12.319 --> 00:16:15.355
  • There was no formalline by the way,
  • 00:16:15.355 --> 00:16:16.857
  • there's just four stationsand they don't say
  • 00:16:16.857 --> 00:16:18.992
  • the line starts here.
  • 00:16:18.992 --> 00:16:20.394
  • You just kind ofsee what's going on,
  • 00:16:20.394 --> 00:16:22.429
  • you realize that those twoguys are in front of me.
  • 00:16:22.429 --> 00:16:24.898
  • So I stood next to the guys
  • 00:16:24.898 --> 00:16:26.433
  • and I have my bananas andhad my other little things
  • 00:16:26.433 --> 00:16:29.536
  • and as we're standing there,one of the stations opened up.
  • 00:16:29.536 --> 00:16:32.572
  • And right when itopened up this woman
  • 00:16:32.572 --> 00:16:35.208
  • with a cart full of stuffcuts right in front of us
  • 00:16:35.208 --> 00:16:38.912
  • and goes over to the station.
  • 00:16:38.912 --> 00:16:41.248
  • And when she didthat, no, the anger,
  • 00:16:41.248 --> 00:16:45.385
  • the frustration in me starts'cause we were waiting
  • 00:16:45.385 --> 00:16:47.854
  • for that station and she justcut right in front of us.
  • 00:16:47.854 --> 00:16:50.690
  • So, I look at the twoguys and they looked at me
  • 00:16:50.690 --> 00:16:54.394
  • and I sensed, sometimesthe Holy Spirit speaks.
  • 00:16:54.394 --> 00:16:59.399
  • I sense the Holy Spiritsay Cedric just let it go,
  • 00:17:00.834 --> 00:17:01.968
  • don't say anything.
  • 00:17:01.968 --> 00:17:03.603
  • But I was angry.
  • 00:17:03.603 --> 00:17:04.805
  • She did that to us,we were waiting.
  • 00:17:04.805 --> 00:17:06.673
  • So I said excuse meand she looked at me.
  • 00:17:06.673 --> 00:17:11.244
  • I said excuse me, wewere waiting for that.
  • 00:17:11.244 --> 00:17:13.380
  • And she goes no you weren't,you were waiting for that one.
  • 00:17:13.380 --> 00:17:15.515
  • This is the one that opened up.
  • 00:17:15.515 --> 00:17:17.384
  • And that's when I knew Iwas gonna have a problem
  • 00:17:17.384 --> 00:17:19.319
  • because she was speakingback to me right away.
  • 00:17:19.319 --> 00:17:22.989
  • And I said no, that'snot how it works.
  • 00:17:24.124 --> 00:17:26.259
  • There's a line here and wewere waiting for that station
  • 00:17:26.259 --> 00:17:30.063
  • and right at the moment sheturns to me and she goes,
  • 00:17:30.063 --> 00:17:33.433
  • "Sir, I hope you chokeon your bananas."
  • 00:17:33.433 --> 00:17:37.237
  • And I went, that's when theHoly Spirit said Cedric,
  • 00:17:38.638 --> 00:17:40.907
  • I told you not to say anything.
  • 00:17:40.907 --> 00:17:43.009
  • And I said oh no no, I'min a dogfight with a woman
  • 00:17:44.444 --> 00:17:47.380
  • in Kroger's over nothing.
  • 00:17:47.380 --> 00:17:49.783
  • I was letting myanger control me.
  • 00:17:50.951 --> 00:17:53.720
  • So all of a sudden thisman comes out of nowhere,
  • 00:17:53.720 --> 00:17:56.823
  • it was her husband andhe walks over to me.
  • 00:17:56.823 --> 00:17:59.759
  • Now I'm thinkingto myself oh no,
  • 00:17:59.759 --> 00:18:02.195
  • I can see the headlinesin the Houston Chronicle.
  • 00:18:02.195 --> 00:18:04.831
  • Priest Gets Into Fight withMan at Kroger's Over Bananas
  • 00:18:04.831 --> 00:18:09.002
  • and I'm thinking oh no,now what's gonna happen?
  • 00:18:09.002 --> 00:18:11.538
  • He walks over to meand much to my surprise
  • 00:18:11.538 --> 00:18:13.373
  • he shakes my hand and hegoes, sir, he goes I'm sorry.
  • 00:18:13.373 --> 00:18:17.744
  • She doesn't mean it,please just let it go
  • 00:18:17.744 --> 00:18:20.647
  • and I said wow, andI'm thinking to myself,
  • 00:18:20.647 --> 00:18:23.884
  • sir I didn't say it outloud but I'm saying sir,
  • 00:18:23.884 --> 00:18:26.853
  • I don't know what you didin your past to deserve her
  • 00:18:26.853 --> 00:18:29.022
  • but it must have beensomething pretty bad.
  • 00:18:29.022 --> 00:18:31.191
  • Well anyway he goes over to her
  • 00:18:32.292 --> 00:18:33.793
  • and she's upset and I'mupset and it took awhile.
  • 00:18:33.793 --> 00:18:36.129
  • Finally they checkedout and they left
  • 00:18:36.129 --> 00:18:37.964
  • and I'm thinking to myself,
  • 00:18:37.964 --> 00:18:40.000
  • Cedric you should'vejust let it go.
  • 00:18:40.000 --> 00:18:42.235
  • Some fights aren'tworth fighting.
  • 00:18:42.235 --> 00:18:45.238
  • Some battles aren'tworth fighting.
  • 00:18:45.238 --> 00:18:47.407
  • Don't let your anger control you
  • 00:18:47.407 --> 00:18:49.442
  • and I'll say thesame thing to you.
  • 00:18:49.442 --> 00:18:51.178
  • Don't let youranger control you.
  • 00:18:52.412 --> 00:18:54.080
  • Be angry, but sin notbecause you never know,
  • 00:18:55.248 --> 00:18:57.851
  • that guy that walked up tome, he could've had a gun,
  • 00:18:57.851 --> 00:19:00.854
  • he could've wanted to fight,
  • 00:19:00.854 --> 00:19:02.189
  • he could've got meinto big trouble.
  • 00:19:02.189 --> 00:19:04.391
  • So you just don't know andespecially if you're driving
  • 00:19:04.391 --> 00:19:06.393
  • a car and somebody cuts you off.
  • 00:19:06.393 --> 00:19:08.595
  • It can be, remember whatI said, anger kills.
  • 00:19:08.595 --> 00:19:12.899
  • So, let's talk a littlebit more about it
  • 00:19:12.899 --> 00:19:15.969
  • because people arefeeling angry all the time
  • 00:19:15.969 --> 00:19:18.471
  • and it's happeningall over the place.
  • 00:19:18.471 --> 00:19:21.441
  • I remember the storyabout Moby Dick.
  • 00:19:21.441 --> 00:19:25.612
  • Remember HermanMelville's Moby Dick?
  • 00:19:25.612 --> 00:19:28.481
  • This captain of a whaling ship,
  • 00:19:28.481 --> 00:19:32.085
  • when he was a young mangets his leg bit off
  • 00:19:32.085 --> 00:19:35.088
  • by this great white whale andfor the rest of his life now
  • 00:19:35.088 --> 00:19:39.492
  • it was a terrible accident.
  • 00:19:39.492 --> 00:19:41.928
  • But now for the rest ofhis life, he is enraged.
  • 00:19:41.928 --> 00:19:45.465
  • And he's obsessed aboutgetting this whale back.
  • 00:19:45.465 --> 00:19:49.002
  • Finally, years later CaptainAhab gets his chance.
  • 00:19:49.002 --> 00:19:52.872
  • After searching for him foryears, he finds Moby Dick.
  • 00:19:52.872 --> 00:19:56.076
  • He's got a harpoon in his hand
  • 00:19:56.076 --> 00:19:58.044
  • and with all the anger and range
  • 00:19:58.044 --> 00:20:00.146
  • that all these years brought,
  • 00:20:00.146 --> 00:20:01.915
  • he throws the harpooninto Moby Dick.
  • 00:20:01.915 --> 00:20:04.651
  • Moby Dick goes down,unbeknownst to him,
  • 00:20:04.651 --> 00:20:07.687
  • the rope to the harpoon wasaround his leg, his other leg.
  • 00:20:07.687 --> 00:20:11.591
  • When Moby Dick went down,he went down with Moby Dick.
  • 00:20:11.591 --> 00:20:15.595
  • The point of the story, yougotta let go of your anger
  • 00:20:15.595 --> 00:20:18.531
  • or your anger's gonna kill you.
  • 00:20:18.531 --> 00:20:20.834
  • Anger kills.
  • 00:20:22.269 --> 00:20:23.937
  • So what do we do aboutangry, about anger?
  • 00:20:23.937 --> 00:20:27.607
  • How do we handle it?
  • 00:20:27.607 --> 00:20:28.675
  • Anger can be a horrible emotion.
  • 00:20:29.542 --> 00:20:32.846
  • In fact,
  • 00:20:32.846 --> 00:20:34.347
  • I wanted to tell you thisstory really quickly about,
  • 00:20:34.347 --> 00:20:35.849
  • I was preaching in Floridaand this pastor tells me
  • 00:20:35.849 --> 00:20:38.652
  • about this woman and they werea married couple actually.
  • 00:20:38.652 --> 00:20:42.455
  • They were in their 60s andthey got into this fight.
  • 00:20:42.455 --> 00:20:45.592
  • Remember what I saidabout marriages,
  • 00:20:45.592 --> 00:20:47.093
  • that anger is the number onereason why marriages split up.
  • 00:20:47.093 --> 00:20:51.197
  • Well they get intothis big fight
  • 00:20:51.197 --> 00:20:52.732
  • and they were goingat it with each other.
  • 00:20:52.732 --> 00:20:54.267
  • The man ends up having aheart attack, anger kills
  • 00:20:54.267 --> 00:20:58.004
  • and he dies right on the floor.
  • 00:20:58.004 --> 00:20:59.706
  • She had to live forthe rest of her life
  • 00:20:59.706 --> 00:21:02.475
  • with that image of her husbanddying right in front of her
  • 00:21:02.475 --> 00:21:06.012
  • and the last thing that hesaw was her yelling at him.
  • 00:21:06.012 --> 00:21:10.817
  • So please, be angry but sin not.
  • 00:21:10.817 --> 00:21:14.387
  • Don't let it eat you up inside,
  • 00:21:15.822 --> 00:21:17.290
  • don't let it destroyyour marriages.
  • 00:21:17.290 --> 00:21:19.426
  • Try to manage it.
  • 00:21:19.426 --> 00:21:21.394
  • Anger is very real, so howdo we get a handle on it?
  • 00:21:21.394 --> 00:21:24.831
  • How do we handle this emotion?
  • 00:21:24.831 --> 00:21:27.000
  • First of all, you'vegot to admit it.
  • 00:21:27.000 --> 00:21:29.869
  • It's kind of likethe 12-step programs.
  • 00:21:29.869 --> 00:21:31.938
  • When you have a problem withalcohol, you gotta admit it.
  • 00:21:31.938 --> 00:21:34.808
  • That's the first step.
  • 00:21:34.808 --> 00:21:36.309
  • Most people are angry andthey don't even realize
  • 00:21:36.309 --> 00:21:38.311
  • that they're angry.
  • 00:21:38.311 --> 00:21:39.846
  • They don't, they're not intouch with their emotion.
  • 00:21:39.846 --> 00:21:42.215
  • So first of all you just realize
  • 00:21:42.215 --> 00:21:43.516
  • and then realize thatyou got a choice.
  • 00:21:43.516 --> 00:21:45.618
  • You don't have to fly out, youdon't have to just respond.
  • 00:21:47.053 --> 00:21:48.922
  • You don't have to justas I said, sin not.
  • 00:21:48.922 --> 00:21:51.491
  • Or sin.
  • 00:21:52.459 --> 00:21:54.094
  • You have a choice, count to 10.
  • 00:21:54.094 --> 00:21:56.696
  • For some peoplewho count to 100.
  • 00:21:58.031 --> 00:22:00.433
  • Remember what I said at thebeginning of the program.
  • 00:22:01.901 --> 00:22:03.703
  • Take a deep breath and relax.
  • 00:22:03.703 --> 00:22:07.407
  • Don't let angerdictate your emotions.
  • 00:22:07.407 --> 00:22:11.311
  • Don't let themdictate your actions.
  • 00:22:11.311 --> 00:22:13.880
  • Take a deep breath, respond,don't overreact and then,
  • 00:22:15.315 --> 00:22:19.719
  • an ounce of prevention'sworth a pound of cure.
  • 00:22:19.719 --> 00:22:23.323
  • What do I mean by that?
  • 00:22:23.323 --> 00:22:24.257
  • When I go driving in Houston,
  • 00:22:24.257 --> 00:22:25.525
  • I don't just hop inmy car anymore and go.
  • 00:22:25.525 --> 00:22:28.294
  • I tell myself beforehand,Cedric there's gonna be traffic.
  • 00:22:28.294 --> 00:22:31.531
  • You're probably not gonna getthere as fast as you wanna go,
  • 00:22:31.531 --> 00:22:35.435
  • take your time.
  • 00:22:36.970 --> 00:22:37.837
  • Realize there's gonna betraffic and so we live
  • 00:22:39.606 --> 00:22:43.109
  • in an imperfect world andyou have to understand that.
  • 00:22:43.109 --> 00:22:47.013
  • So an ounce of prevention'sworth a pound of cure.
  • 00:22:47.013 --> 00:22:49.816
  • Realize, remember what Isaid about the megaphone?
  • 00:22:49.816 --> 00:22:52.419
  • Realize that there isfutility in our world
  • 00:22:52.419 --> 00:22:56.523
  • and it's imperfect.
  • 00:22:56.523 --> 00:22:57.857
  • Now that shouldn'tlead you to despair,
  • 00:22:57.857 --> 00:22:59.526
  • it's being realistic andwhen you're realistic
  • 00:22:59.526 --> 00:23:02.862
  • you won't be as angry.
  • 00:23:02.862 --> 00:23:05.231
  • Remember one ofthe problems with,
  • 00:23:05.231 --> 00:23:06.966
  • or one of the causes ofanger is perfectionism.
  • 00:23:06.966 --> 00:23:10.503
  • You think you're gonna havethings your way all the time
  • 00:23:10.503 --> 00:23:12.505
  • and when things aren'tperfect, you get angry.
  • 00:23:12.505 --> 00:23:14.707
  • So be realistic.
  • 00:23:14.707 --> 00:23:16.709
  • And then as I said,anger is a channel.
  • 00:23:16.709 --> 00:23:20.580
  • It's an energy thatyou can channel.
  • 00:23:20.580 --> 00:23:23.116
  • Talked about MothersAgainst Drunk Driving.
  • 00:23:23.116 --> 00:23:26.319
  • One of the ways that you canactually overcome an addiction
  • 00:23:26.319 --> 00:23:30.757
  • is by getting angry.
  • 00:23:30.757 --> 00:23:31.991
  • Your anger can lead youinto a recovery program.
  • 00:23:33.193 --> 00:23:35.261
  • You're sick and tiredof being sick and tired.
  • 00:23:35.261 --> 00:23:38.097
  • Same with habitual sins.
  • 00:23:38.097 --> 00:23:39.299
  • Same with habits, bad habits.
  • 00:23:40.233 --> 00:23:43.169
  • Get angry about it anddo something about it.
  • 00:23:43.169 --> 00:23:47.407
  • That's what Jesusdid in the temple.
  • 00:23:47.407 --> 00:23:49.042
  • There was an injustice going on,
  • 00:23:49.042 --> 00:23:50.910
  • they were sellingall these things
  • 00:23:50.910 --> 00:23:52.345
  • and he went and turnedthe tables over.
  • 00:23:52.345 --> 00:23:55.315
  • Zeal for your houseconsumes me in a good way.
  • 00:23:55.315 --> 00:23:59.018
  • That's how you fight injustice.
  • 00:23:59.018 --> 00:24:01.054
  • Mothers Against Drunk Driving.
  • 00:24:01.054 --> 00:24:03.590
  • You fight racism, not byrioting but by protesting.
  • 00:24:03.590 --> 00:24:07.994
  • So let's wind all this up.
  • 00:24:09.128 --> 00:24:11.130
  • Anger isn't a sin,it's an emotion.
  • 00:24:12.632 --> 00:24:16.469
  • But its overreactionscan lead you to sin.
  • 00:24:16.469 --> 00:24:21.407
  • So the Bible tells us,be angry but don't sin.
  • 00:24:21.407 --> 00:24:24.978
  • Don't overreact.
  • 00:24:24.978 --> 00:24:26.279
  • Manage your emotions,you can do it.
  • 00:24:27.380 --> 00:24:30.750
  • Don't let anger kill you
  • 00:24:31.985 --> 00:24:34.020
  • and by the graceof the Holy Spirit
  • 00:24:35.188 --> 00:24:37.223
  • I hope you'll take thatenergy and turn it into good.
  • 00:24:37.223 --> 00:24:41.127
  • Don't just live,live with passion.
  • 00:24:41.127 --> 00:24:43.363
  • (twinkly music)
  • 00:24:43.363 --> 00:24:46.032
  • I received an emailfrom a woman, she said,
  • 00:24:48.067 --> 00:24:50.036
  • "Father thank youfor your programs.
  • 00:24:50.036 --> 00:24:51.437
  • "Because of your TV programsI went to Confession
  • 00:24:51.437 --> 00:24:53.306
  • "for the firsttime in 35 years."
  • 00:24:53.306 --> 00:24:55.308
  • Wow, that's exactly what I'mabout with Live With Passion.
  • 00:24:55.308 --> 00:24:58.878
  • Trying to helppeople to come to God
  • 00:24:58.878 --> 00:25:00.446
  • in a deep, personal way.

  • Now I've been in theconfessional for 30years as a priest
  • 00:25:02.148 --> 00:25:04.984
  • and the number onething I hear from people
  • 00:25:04.984 --> 00:25:06.920
  • is Father, I'm angry.
  • 00:25:06.920 --> 00:25:08.321
  • The spiritual life is aboutmanaging your emotions.
  • 00:25:09.722 --> 00:25:12.492
  • It's about self control.
  • 00:25:12.492 --> 00:25:14.494
  • Whether it's anger, whetherit's lust, whatever it is.
  • 00:25:14.494 --> 00:25:18.498
  • And I wrote a bookcalled "You Can Change".
  • 00:25:18.498 --> 00:25:21.868
