Something to read and then act upon

Being but an amateur at this "writing for others" thing, I'm not going to waste words that I've invented on my own when another has written exactly what I'm thinking far more eloquently than I am likely to put it myself. Fr. Daren Zehnle has in short order given us a lead we as Christians have no choice but to follow. Read the whole thing - read it slowly and with full focus. Then read it again. Then do something about it.

I refuse to water down the Gospel, because it is not mine to change or alter. I must proclaim the Gospel and I must do so in its entirety, which will sometimes mean that people will not like what they hear.
Would that it were we all claimed that as our principle. Christ has called us, he has given us a command. We can go forward, we can go backward, it's entirely up to us. Let us not forget, "Always be prepared to make a defense to any one who calls you to account for the hope that is in you" (1 Peter:15).
