There seems to be an awful lot of anger. It appears there is not an issue that does not cause two people to get angry with each other. It becomes difficult to bring up any issue in certain settings, because it is likely emotions will get out of control. As a result of this anger, people might decide only to seek out those with whom they agree. They might choose only to read, watch or listen to those news sources that share or confirm their own bias. As a result, it can be even more difficult to find areas where a person can encounter a differing point of view.
Does anyone have a desire for greater unity? More civility? And in the midst of this anger, what’s a Catholic to do? How can Catholics both commit to the truth on the one hand, while on the other hand choosing the method of conversation and dialogue that leads another to listen? Perhaps the answer lies in the unity of three persons in one God.
