Selling Jesus Like a Chevy | First Things

  1. I usually try to avoid engaging with proselytizers, unless I'm in a nasty mood. I don't understand the propensity some people have for thinking that if they believe something, they have the right to try and make everyone believe it!

    When it comes to faith, I have a simple approach: if you got it, good for you. But keep it out of my range unless and until I specifically ask for it. And at the ripe old age of mumblety-mumble, I've pretty much got all the basics, thankyouverymuch. If I haven't bought it by now, it ain't never gonna happen.

    I guess I have a difficult time with the terminology, too. "Sharing?" I don't "share" my religion with anyone. I'll share my lunch, my closet, my living space, my books, my music, anything tangible. But how does one "share" an intangible?

  4. Mary, I don't "share" my beliefs. I might demonstrate some part of my chosen path by how I live and respond to others, but my beliefs belong only to me. I wouldn't even know how to start...

  5. But Lady Janus, you are "sharing" your beliefs right now on this blog!
    Sharing your beliefs means telling others (usually your friends) what is in your heart and mind. I dislike immensely the impersonal type of salesman-like "sharing" expressed in the First Things article.

Sisters of Life

Here is an excellent website for any and all interested in the pro-life cause. The Sisters of Life are a religious order than began in New York City under the authority of Cardinal Jon O'Connor (RIP) in the 1980's. Their traditional religious lifestyle and clear charism have led them to grow much faster than many other orders. As a result, these wonderful women are moving beyond the boundaries of NYC and have opened a convent in Toronto. Here is a link to a news account from LifesiteNews which explains in greater detail their history and mission in Toronto. The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join

The overwhelming defeat of Bill C-384 proved that we can Push-Back the euthanasia lobby in the US and Canada and convince people that euthanasia and assisted suicide are a dangerous public policy.
