“Blessed are you…” Luke 6: 20
“Blessed are you when people hate you,…exclude and insult you,
and denounce your name…on account of the Son of Man.” Luke 6: 22
All of us have been in situations when someone has made a negative comment or joke about God or our Catholic faith. How did you respond? Did you stay silent or pretend to go along with the crowd because you didn’t want to cause waves and then, later, you felt bad? Know that God is with you all the time, the Holy Spirit will put the right words in your mouth. Pray for the strength and courage to proclaim our faith to others, especially during uncomfortable situations.
