If you find yourself looking for a particular “camp” inside the Catholic church, be it left, right, trad, liberal, it is only because you are in the “wrong someplace” within yourself and can not stand ALONE with our Lord. It is you and Him. No one else to grab out for. No one else to blame. No one else but yourself and Him. His tent.
ONE Body in Christ. I am Roman Catholic. Some say I am not Catholic enough. Some say I am way too Catholic. The only thing that matters, is our Lord calls me by name to Him and I listen to Him, following Him.
I was lost, now I am found.
“If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.”
In a conversation today that I was having in regards to the Marriage issues, I was told by a support of SSM, to stop bringing God into the conversation….
When I profess my faith, how can I turn around then when someone says “Leave your faith out of ______________” and do just that.
If I TRULY believe, If I confess with my lips and LIVE the faith He has given to me, IF He truly is in EVERY ASPECT of my life, how then can if justify leaving Him out for the sake of “argument”, or for the sake it may be “offending”, or for any other sake, when the reality is, it’s an invitation to leave Him behind and follow something outside of the faith He has given to me? For me to leave God out of the discussion, the government, the school, the conversation or out anywhere, is to say He is not a part of every aspect of my life.
It’s not just what I believe, or what I profess, it’s who I am. To leave Him out, to say that God is not welcome here, or leave your faith out of it, is telling ME I am not welcome.
Don’t leave Him out of anything. Never let go of His hand. Don’t be bullied to let Him go and be forced in any way to be attached to something that refuses to allow Him in. To be one in Christ, means, to be one for all time. Not just sometimes.
Go back to where YOU left Him and bring Him back in.
