Our Primary Task is to Uphold the Truth with Love
Yesterday, my wife sent me a link to this post at Crux. It's about the potential for unhealthiness in Catholic blogging.
The line I liked the most was this restatement of Pope Francis's direction for Catholic media production:
Our primary task is to uphold the truth with love.
I also liked the description of "diplomatic" language being language "inspired by mercy, which never loses hope."
Here's a point to ponder.
The Kindling is a creative endeavor run by people who care about truth and justice. Creation. Truth. Justice.
Aquinas teaches that justice (a kind of truth) and mercy are in each of God's acts: even the act of creation.
It's highly creative to be truthful and merciful simultaneously.
