My frriends and I just got back from a road trip to New Mexico where we visited a Benedictine monastery, St. Francis Cathedral, and Chimayo. My friends were really shown the deeply profound side of Catholicism on this trip because of these sites and one of my Lutheran friends bought a Rosary and a book on how to say the Rosary! I think it was a rather spiritual experience for my friends (two are Lutheran and one is Atheist).
Now that we’ve gotten back though, we’re all being harassed on Facebook (similar to MySpace) by some Mormon friends we have. They wrote public messages asking why we had gone to “Catholic Camp” as they so bitterly put it, and my friend who bought the Rosary said they asked him why he bought a Rosary. He said they made him feel like he’d converted and was the worst person on Earth.
I feel like an O.T. prophet. These Mormons used to be my friends, but I participate in a few religious activities, and now they’re venomous! They act like nothing’s happening when I see them face-to-face, but online they’re very rude. Hypocrites!
Please pray for my friends and myself that we can overcome this persecution and be able to offer forgiveness. Pray for my Mormon friends as well that they can open themselves to the Truth.
"Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?! You hypocrite! First take the log out of your own eye, then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s. Mat 7:3,5
