Brothers and Sisters
Living as a Christian is not a neutral reality. The disciples and early Christians were committing themselves to real challenges, often life-threatening. Answering Christ’s call was to embrace his life with all its ramifications. Those who did so believed it would be worth it. It’s doubtful that they blindly followed him.
Have we ever considered that being Catholic Christian may cost us something? Perhaps we’ve never asked ourselves this question. Maybe it is time to do so.
