Forget the saying, “preach the Gospel and when necessary, use words.”
St. Francis. Means preach the Gospel by how you live.
You don’t think “words” are necessary now? Neither does the Pope. We talk too much about abortion and homo-marriage, right?
Think about it, though. Sixty years ago, both abortion and homo-marriage were universally illegal and considered immoral.
Now that both are legal, almost universally, now is the time to talk about it! It’s “necessary”, as St Francis says.
