At Matthew 5:39-41 (NRSVCE) we read:
But I say to you, Do not resist an evildoer. But if anyone strikes you on the right cheek, turn the other also; and if anyone wants to sue you and take your coat, give your cloak as well; and if anyone forces you to go one mile, go also the second mile.
I wish to know about the backdrop against which a person could have been forced to go one mile, say by a soldier who was shifting his post and was looking for a native to accompany him to his new place of posting. How do the Catholic teachings interpret the said saying of Jesus?
