Geeky Catholic Advent: Friday of the Second Week of Advent 2018

Gospel Reading: Matthew 11:16-19

Highlight: "Wisdom is vindicated by her works."

Reflection: It can be very difficult to be a Christian today. It seems that at best, we are called old fashioned and irrelevant, and at worst we are called intolerant bigots. The truth is twisted around so much that it's hard to know the difference between right wrong. But Jesus assures us that those who remain in the truth will triumph in the end - if not in this life, then in the next.

Geeky Quote: "Compromise when you can. Where you can't, don't. Even if everyone is telling you that something wrong is something right. Even if the whole world is telling you to move. It is your duty, to plant yourself like a tree, look them in the eye and say, 'No... you move.'" - Sharon Carter, Captain America: Civil War

Prayer: Lord, help me to hold onto your teachings no matter what. Give me the courage to do what is right, no matter what anyone else says or thinks about me. Amen.
