Me: Good morning aunty.
Aunty: Good morning, where are you going?
Me: Church. Today is Palm Sunday.
Aunty: Oh, when were you baptised?
Me: Last Easter Vigil.
Aunty: Good, good. Congratulations. Which church do you go to?
Me: Holy Spirit.
Aunty: Where is that?
Me: Green Lane.
Aunty: All the churches are the same. We all pray to the same God, except the Catholics – they worship Mary.
Me: I am a Roman Catholic.
Aunty: Oh! Err…
Is there really a necessity to blow out another light to let yours shine? I wonder what Jesus would have said had he overheard this conversation. Like all other denominations of Christianity, Roman Catholics worship God and God only. How can there be unity in Christendom when there are those who try so hard to point out the differences but fail to see that we are similar in more ways than one?
