We as good Catholics need to pray for people that are most in need of God's Mercy. I hope if I ever go wacko that you all pray for me.
Love is not emotion but an act of the will. Show your love by prayer for even those that make it tough and you will also build treasure in Heaven.
Say a Divine Mercy Chaplet and it will help them and all of us as well. Take care and God Bless.
As hard as it is to do, praying for those like Hitchens is quite the act of Christian Love. I remind myself that God wants him to turn around more than we do!
I am reminded of the Gospel story of the Good Samaritan, of only a couple weeks ago. The analogy of Samaritan/Jew to Christian / militant atheist is quite apropos.
