Do You Always Assume the Worst in Others? #AskFrJosh

Ask Fr. Josh is the question and answer show to help you navigate life when our Catholic Faith doesn’t give an easy “fill-in-the-blank” answer.

Today, Fr Josh challenges us to evaluate our lives and actions according to the words of St. James, (James 1:19-20) to see if we are taking offense too quickly, and assuming the worst in others. We ought to be “quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger” as the Apostle commends us.

Meet Fr. Josh Johnson

While Fr. Josh was raised Catholic, he didn’t like the Church growing up. Then, one day in adoration, he fell in love with Jesus and received the call to become a priest.

Now, Fr. Josh is the Vocations Director of the Diocese of Baton Rouge in Louisiana. He is a presenter in four of Ascension’s programs: Altaration, YOU: Life, Love, and the Theology of the Body, The 99, and Connected: Catholic Social Teaching for This Generation, as well as the author of Broken and Blessed: An Invitation to My Generation, Pocket Guide to Adoration, and co-author of Pocket Guide to Reconciliation.
