Joan of Arc. Her biggest “crime” at the time of her execution – she was burned at the stake, that can’t be fun – was that she dressed like a man. Some time later, her name was cleared and even far beyond that, she was made a saint!
How times change. Despair not friends who feel like Church persecutes you or others that you love or respect. Despair not friends who feel like Church is going to the dogs… Those dogs could be the saints of tomorrow.
We must all take off our blinders and see with new eyes of love, mercy and the deep call of Jesus to work towards the common good.
