Thought of the Day August 14, 2017 Response to indifference

By 10:00 AM

“The most deadly poison of our time is
indifference.” (St. Maximilian Kolbe) He said this about seventy years ago and it is even more so true today. At the time he was dealing with the indifference of people to the actions of Nazism, especially to Christians and Jews. Today, we are dealing with the indifference of Catholics to secularism and atheism. Jesus identified this indifference of his time with the word, lukewarm. How indifferent or lukewarm are we to the rising tide all around us of subtle persecution? Are we like the frog in a pot of water, calm and indifferent to the slowly heated water around us, until it is too late to react when are cooked? Pray for wisdom to know what God wants each of us to do not to be indifferent
to the rising tide of secularism and atheism. Two things come to mind: pray to grow in holiness of life and to be the disciple witness that Jesus calls each of us to be, witnessing our faith in a public way.
