"Bitterly orthodox"

I friend of mine used this term to describe herself as she was a few years ago... zealous for the truth of the faith, but in a way that made her constantly bitter about others' lack of orthodoxy.

This attitude is, sadly, common among too many good Catholics, and it's found St. Blog's just as it is in any other Catholic parish. It's prompted a number of bloggers to comment: Gerard, Bill and Alan coming immediately to mind with their recent posts.

Orthodoxy should prompt joy and peace of spirit, not bitterness and hostility.
