I want to just live as a catholic doing what jesus says in the Gospel. serving the needy and poor and living a charity life. I feel if I die today my whole life is all me me me. I don’t know how to distinguish it from a wordly life except for going to mass confession praing. how can lay people truly live charity according to christs commands in the gospels? truly? In truth I fear homeless dirty people. I instinctively think they are dangerous. but that makes me like any world person. reading lives of early Christians and in two millennia, I see evidence of love in their lives. I don’t see it in mine or many lay persons lives apart from giving something in the collection basket on sunday. I fear if jesus came today he will be so disappointed in me.
truly how can regular catholics live true charity according to Crists commands in every day life? a charity that says we are catholics. not just nice people. true charity as a mark of our faith. it cannot be the solution is to become priests and nuns. surely this is the Christianity of all people not only those who become nuns and priests. I want to do and live charity. I want this to be my vocation. how can I do it? or other laity? thank you.
