“What I really want, Lord, is to be your faithful disciple, but we all need our creature comforts. Am I right, or am I right?”
My latest at Our Sunday Visitor Newsweekly.
Just keep writing.
Is it a sin to gossip if the story’s true? That’s not breaking the Eighth Commandment, is it? The one that forbids bearing false witness against your neighbor?
False witness, bad. OK. But true story … well. Hmm. This seems to have some possibilities.
Perhaps the snag is the word “gossip.” So let’s say “share.” Is it a sin to share if the story is true? Not to sound all “piousy” here, but as Catholics aren’t we called to share the truth?
Wait! Could this mean gossiping … uh … sharing the truth is the right thing to do? Dare we even call it holy!...
