**********************************************************************

Have you found yourself dealing with debate and disagreement among our family and friends in light of the latest ambiguous, weird, or perplexing thing Pope Francis (or one of his hirelings) said or did? Do you find yourself feeling defensive for the first time and even accused of being divisive?

You are not alone. In this kitchen-based commentary, I share some ideas and reminders of how to stay calm when tensions set in. Jesus told us flat out that He didn’t come to bring peace, but a sword (Mt 10), and then He provides the context: following Him as a disciple means making Him number one in your life. The strongly held opinions of spouses, brothers, sisters, uncles, pals, etc. can’t compare with the teachings of Christ and His lordship. Hence, tensions and being an enemy (Jesus is using Jewish hyperbole here) with otherwise close relations is part of the life of the Christian.

FROM FACEBOOK:

“Sometimes I wonder what decade I’m in. Maybe we are still in the late ’60s or early ’70s? A man argued with me recently that we Catholics should “stop putting so much energy” into telling people “why X is wrong or X will send them to hell” and more about God’s love. I’m all for telling folks about God’s love! But has he missed the fact that we’ve had two generations (at least) who have heard little else but “God is love”? I grew up as a Catholic in the ’70s and ’80s. My story is *extremely common* (below) and any GenX Catholic in America will identify with it. So, my question is… Why do folks–the ones who do not want to talk about hell and the danger of sin–seem to care so little about the souls who NEED to hear that part? Sure, some sinners won’t be motivated by that and won’t need that “warning”– but MANY SOULS DO. And even if it’s only 10% of all souls who need to hear a severe warning about hell and sin (like I did) before they turn around to God’s love… well, aren’t their souls worth it? I say, yes, their souls are worth saving, too. Good gracious, what happened to “diversity,” people?”
