Are All Catholics Hypocrites?

Sometimes we’re not everything we wish we could be. At times all we can do is act as if we believe, because we’re just not up to truly putting our faith in God​ at that moment​. In this video, Fr. Mike explains why, in a sense, it’s ​OK to be a ​​“hypocrite” at those times. It’s ​OK to act like a person who​ believes​​ even when we feel ​like ​we don’t. Otherwise, we ​might think “​being honest” and ​acting like we don’t believe is better​—​even when we really do believe and are just going through ​a ​tough time.
