A Petition to Love

Hi all. :slight_smile:
I have recently been noticing something. I believe that many times as Catholics we can get very defensive with our faith, but not in a good way. I have seen people snap at others for saying something wrong about the Church. I understand it is our duty to stand up for the Church Christ gave us, but the thing is, that person may have never been taught the truth and needs someone to LOVINGLY share it with them. I understand we need to share the truth, but if we do not love the person, will the person find the Church as pleasing? No. So please guys, share this plea. This is a plea to love. To love no matter what. Our world needs us to love them, not to mindlessly tell them they are wrong.

Amen. This is why we are all called to evangelize our faith.
