4.7 Žive li kršćani drukčije od svih ostalih?

Živjeti kršćanskim životom

Najvažnija zadaća svakog kršćanina je voljeti Boga i bližnjega. Naravno, i nekršćani mogu činiti stvarno dobra djela [> 4.8].

Glavna razlika između kršćana i nekršćana je u tome što smo kršteni i zato pripadamo Isusu [> 3,36]. Ovu razliku možemo pokazati načinom kojim živimo: temeljen na vjeri i povjerenju u Boga. Gdje god je to potrebno, kršćani također daju sve od sebe kako bi pomogli drugima [> 4.45] da žive bolje.

Kao kršćani, od našeg krštenja pripadamo Isusu. Nadamo se da se to vidi u načinu na koji ljubimo Boga i druge ljude.

The Wisdom of the Church

What are the “corporal works of mercy”?

To feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, clothe the naked, shelter the homeless, visit the sick and the imprisoned, and bury the dead. [Youcat 450]

What are the “spiritual works of mercy”?

The spiritual works of mercy are: to instruct the ignorant, to counsel the doubtful, comfort the sorrowful, admonish the sinner, bear wrongs patiently, forgive all injuries, and pray for the living and the dead. [Youcat 451]

This is what the Popes say

Bear witness to Jesus with your courageous faith and your innocence. It is no use complaining of' the wickedness of the times. As St Paul wrote, we must overcome evil by doing good (Rom 12:21). The world esteems and respects the courage of ideas and the strength of virtues. Do not be afraid to refuse words, acts, and attitudes which are not in conformity with Christian ideals. Be courageous in rejecting what destroys your innocence or wilts the freshness of your love for Christ. [Pope John Paul II, Address to Italian youth, 8 Nov. 1978]
