  • The blog header depicts an important and yet mis-understood New Testament scene, Jesus flogging the money-changers out of the temple. I selected it because the faith that gives us consolation can also make us very uncomfortable. Both Divine Mercy and Divine Justice meet in Jesus. Priests are ministers of reconciliation, but never at the cost of truth. In or out of season, we must be courageous in preaching and living out the Gospel of Life. The title of my blog is a play on words, not Flogger Priest but Blogger Priest.

Timid About Moral Correction

downloadQuestion 272

I frequently worry about moral correction and if I am supposed to give it or not. I am on a mission trip and we are allowed to wear shorts to Mass.  During the summer camp we have Mass every day.  Sometimes my teammate wears really short shorts. I usually wear longer shorts because I feel modesty compels me to do so. I really do not want to say anything as it might make this girl mad at me.  I have to work with her all summer. Is it a serious sin to remain silent? I guess I will have to say something. Do you think I should?

Response

You could warn her that the moderators of the mission trip might say something. Otherwise, you might leave it to those in charge as they must see what you see. They are the ones with the main responsibility here.
