Among Women 222: Negativity Among Catholics Thwarts the Good

Among Women 222: Negativity Among Catholics Thwarts the Good

 

 

This episode of Among Women features a conversation about an ancient martyr’s death — that of St. Blandina in 177 AD. But I also discuss the frequent “persecutions” we see online and in the media among Christians whose negativity and criticism toward each other thwarts the good they may do.

My guest is Jaymie Stuart Wolfe, writer of an provocative must-read article from The Pilot (the newspaper from the Archdiocese of Boston) — “Uncomfortable” — that challenges the in-fighting that can happen between members of the Church. Together we discuss the harmful effects of disparaging each other and one another’s projects with a kind of litmus Catholic test. This kind of negativity is contrary to the Christian mission. This show is a call to check our own witness, and to tend to our own efforts at reaching out to others. Let’s instead support each other in extending the mission of the Gospel.

Faithful Among Women listeners will know that I recently announced on episode 191 that I’m attempting to offer fresh audio three times a month… that is, podcasts coming on the 10th, 20th, and 30th of each month. However, given my schedule, doing full length podcasts with that frequency may not always be possible. Therefore, I’m introducing these “espresso shots” –short strong jolts of faith sharing and teaching. I often feel the full length podcast is a friendly conversation over coffee with good friends. But when you are missing your friends, sometimes even a quick visit is worth your time. I hope you concur that, in this case, less is more — if it gets us together more each month!
