Catholic Word of the Day: PROVOCATION, 09-06-12
| Fr. John Hardon's Modern Catholic Dictionary

Featured Term (selected at random):
Exciting or stirring someone to do a certain action. It is one of the ways that a person can share in another's guilt. The provocation can be words or by actions; it can also be done by silence or inactivity. Its gravity depends on the degree of awareness that another person is being provoked to do wrong, and especially on the malice or indifference with which the incitement to evil is performed. (Etym. Latin provocation, a summoning, challenging.)

I was going to spend a week in Salt Lake City, but I got a better deal at a hotel south of there, so I turned it into a Provocation.
