“Momma always had a way of explaining things so I could understand them.”
“America, it is said, is suffering from intolerance – it is not.
It is suffering from tolerance.
Tolerance of right and wrong, truth and error, virtue and evil, Christ and chaos.
Our country is not nearly so overrun with the bigoted
as it is overrun with the broadminded.
The refusal to take sides on great moral issues is itself a decision.
It is a silent acquiescence to evil.
The Tragedy of our time is that those who still believe in honesty lack fire and conviction, while those who believe in dishonesty are full of passionate conviction.”
~Venerable Fulton J. Sheen
Every good Christian ought to be more ready to give a favorable interpretation to another’s perhaps obscure statement or position than to condemn it. But if he can find no way at all to defend the other’s statement made or position taken, let him make careful inquiry into what the other means by it. And if the latter’s attitude or understanding of the matter seems to be somewhat unreasonable, let him gently and courteously point this out to him. And if this course of action brings no result, let him try all other suitable ways to help the other see things in proper perspective and without misconceptions.~St. Ignatius of Loyola, Ignatian Principle as quoted by Pedro Arrupe, S.J.
And that’s all I have to say about that.
hugs n’ blessings to all those who believe
“trust in God,”
goes together like peas & carrots.
