How to Correct Someone in Sin

How do we go about correcting someone in sin without making things worse?

Fraternal correction can vary drastically based on what kind of state the person is in. For example, you wouldn’t approach a person in an abusive or self-destructing behavior the same way you would approach a person in the public eye. Today, however, we’re going to be talking about the basics of fraternal correction, and what to do when you feel called to speak to someone in your life about their relationship with God.
