What Every Catholic Needs to Know about witnessing your faith at work

  1. Religion is part of one's personal life and does NOT belong at work. It is entirely inappropriate to "witness."

  2. I'm trying to imagine a work environment where nobody talks about their personal life. All you'd here are crickets by the water cooler.

  3. Paul, that would be perfectly okay with me. The last thing I want to hear when I'm looking for a drink of water is the details of someone else's digestive tract problems or the "cute" way the new infant painted his walls and himslef with his own feces or how somebody else "found god" when no one even realized he was lost.

    Work environment is not a social gathering.

    For YOU and your work environment that may be true though I find it hard to believe you'd never voice your personal opinions or beliefs to a coworker.
    Clearly for most people work is a big part of their social life and personal lives bubbled to the surface in conversation on a regular basis. These people become more than just a number to you, they become your friends. You'd hear talk of everything and things I would classify as far more personal in nature than ones religious beliefs. Heck my brother in law cuts hair for a living and people spill their guts about the most personal of subject matter as if he's their personal shrink. There are no rules on what you can talk about at work that I'm aware of and my own experience tells me theres no embargo on personal lives in the office.

    Cheers
    Paul

  5. Why would I tell a mere coworker my most personal information? Mind you, I do realize that most people can't resist endlessly chattering and gossiping, so maybe I can understand your unbelief.

    Work is not for socializing. And no, my coworkers are not my friends. They are acquaintances, and we are polite, but we do not socialize on any level.

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.
