Jesus tells us, in Mathew 10:34-36, “Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; and one’s foes will be members of one’s own household.” Choosing Christ and the teachings of His Holy Catholic Church will bring suffering, so stay strong, proclaim the Truth, pray for your friends and relatives who have hardened hearts and let God’s will be done. Amen.

Matthew 10:34-36 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Jesus: A Cause of Division. 34 “Do not think that I have come to bring peace upon the earth. I have come to bring not peace but the sword. 35 For I have come to set

a man ‘against his father,
    a daughter against her mother,
and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law;
36     and one’s enemies will be those of his household.’
