Renounce the lie

“It is lawful… because of their crime, to hold the Jews in everlasting slavery, therefore the princes may regard the possessions of Jews as belonging to the State, however, they must not deprive Jews of things necessary to life.” (St. Thomas Aquinas)

 

Replace with truth

Psalm 6:8-10

Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity;
For the Lord has heard the voice of my weeping.
The Lord has heard my supplication;
The Lord will receive my prayer.
Let all my enemies be ashamed and greatly troubled;
Let them turn back and be ashamed suddenly.
NKJV
