The Overwhelming Influence Of Human Emotions. MS/2018/22

Published By


In a catholic family, a father once saw one of his teenage sons breaking the Good Friday obligatory fast. As a devoted catholic, the father confronted his son bitterly for his inability to show commitment to his faith. Overcame with remorse, his son accepted his failure and pleaded with the father, “I am sorry, Dad, I will be more serious with my faith”

The following day, the father was told that this same son of his forefeited his food for the whole day, not in reparation for the lapses of the previous day but simply because he was annoyed with his elder brother. Suprised by his son’s attitude, the father reasoned aloud; “so the fast that faith could not elicit in the young man, the secondary emotion of anger accomplished with ease. What tremendous influence emotions exert on us, what surge of energy they make avilable to propel us to the heights of success or to plunge us to the depths of failure”.
