... If you are Catholic and you can fog a mirror, you know that our church is a giant jumble of bickering and snippiness.As we go through Good Friday, meditating on what Jesus sacrificed for us, what He endured for our sakes, let us stiffen our spines in refusing to give aid and comfort to The Enemy in the continual efforts to tear us into shreds.
It is a battlefield. Our Church.
Do not be the infantry and the cavalry taking shots at one another. Fight the real enemy.
The worst of that fight may be internal as we struggle not to rip into those among us who have a different perspective. Usually, for me anyway, internal battles are the worst. That's ok. We've got the best example there is. Follow the battle standard of the crucifix into the fight against the real enemy.
