Test of Fire

Like Jesus, our Lord and Master, we Christians are first and foremost ambassadors of love and peace. But promoting peace doesn't mean just sitting back passively and letting the truth be trampled upon without doing anything. How did Jesus react when the scribes and Pharisees tried to mislead people by discrediting him? He confronted the transgressions of his opponents head on and called them "hypocrites", "whitewashed tombs, which appear beautiful on the outside, but inside are full of dead men's bones and every kind of filth", "serpents",  "brood of vipers" (cf. Mt. 23:27-33). Yes, we don't resort to violence. But we must also stand firm on our ground when it comes to defending the truth.

I like this commercial. It makes my apologetic blood boil! Whether it's in the upcoming U.S. election, on our home turf of Canadian politics, or in this world at large, the uncompromising Catholic values of life, marriage, and freedom of religion must be vigorously defended.

If you agree with what I said above, you will love this video "Test of Fire"
