Many so-called Catholics these days reject many of the Church's teachings. How do you respond when a Catholic you know dismisses doctrines of the faith? To admonish the sinner is a spiritual work of mercy. Michael Voris gives a personal example of witnessing in the face of a friend's expression of heresy.
How do you measure up on this spiritual work of mercy? If someone comes to you for advice do you tickle his ears and coddle him in his disbelief? Do you remain silent out of fear of her reaction? Or do you exercise the supreme act of charity by warning friends of the impact of what they are doing? Tough love is willing to suffer.
