Be careful if you open your heart and show compassion, kindness and a little humor.
It can be totally mis-read by many,,,not by all thankfully,,,Then our sweet, kind Catholic brothers and sisters may dive in for the kill and attack your open heart and compassion and humor.
Don't assume that everyone is a merciful, loving Catholic/Christian,,,,at least not practicing..
Don't assume the goodie-goodie stuff on someone's profile is real. Like most things in life,,,,"If it sounds too good to be true,,,it probably is NOT true.."""""""
Fill my heart with gladness
take away all my sadness..
Ease my troubles
that's what you do.!!!!
Shouldn't we be singing this to all people on all levels,,brothers,,sisters,,friends,,,Sweethearts,,Moms,,Dads...ETC..
It's kind of embarrassing, rude for sure! I try to live by the Golden Rule,
but am astounded when the courtesy is not reciprocated. I can take an emote that says something indicating they don't want to continue on, etc...but I can't understand avoidance, like they don't even notice your emails.
It is our Christian, if not Catholic duty to love one another...but do we really?
People aren't what they say they are always. You have to be very careful. Always stick to your Catholic values and hold onto them for dear life. No matter what happens, you can always be glad for that.
