EWTN Catholic Q&A
re: self defense vs. turning the other cheek
Question from jw on 12-04-2012:

Hi Father, This person's question prompted this question? What does "turn the other cheek" mean? Can you give some examples of when we should turn the other cheek? Thanks and Merry Christmas.

Answer by Fr. John Echert on 12-12-2012:

I admit that I am not good at turning the other cheek, so I invite our readers to send me an example or two to make this concrete. Stand by...
