Ignatius in July, 25: Stubbornness in Disputes

See the source imageAs a conclusion to the Ignatian Year, this morsel from one of the saint’s letters.

We should not dispute stubbornly with anyone; rather we should patiently give our reasons with the purpose of declaring the truth lest our neighbor remain in error, and not that we should have the upper hand.

Makes sense to me. Make the case for the truth. The point is not to win the argument.
