Today, the final day of our novena, is the International Day for Tolerance. Tolerance for others who think or act differently than we do is certainly an important step toward living in peace with one another. As we continue to heal from any spiritual ills we have endured, tolerance is a good thing to strive for.
It is not, however, a stopping point. More than simply tolerating one another, we are called to love our brothers and sisters in Christ. This is a goal for which we must never stop working.
