So I was wondering how do you deal with this in real life? Do you ignore the comments the make or what should you do?
Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
I live with it, everyday. My parents have such a strong dislike (I really didn't want to say hate) for the Catholic Church, and even though my Dad is currently serving across the country, I still hear my Mom saying rude things about Catholics, when she herself was a Catholic 6 1/2 years ago!! They don't know I am going to become Catholic, and they also don't know how much it hurts me that they talk bad about the Catholic Church, and a few of our Catholic friends/relatives. How do I deal with it? I certainly don't ignore it. I pray. I pray for my family's conversion everyday, so they can come home with me. Will it ever happen, I highly doubt it, but never doubt the power of prayer.
As for the quote you published, that first line really speaks words of what I have had to endure so far. Being insulted, persecuted, and being lied about to others. It hurts, it really does. But for those on here who are also feeling that, don't let it get to you. It will get better. God wouldn't give you an obstacle you couldn't jump over. He's good that way. :D
