Which way do we go?

I am the way, the truth, and the life.

While much has been written about truth and life, we don't hear much about the way. The reason I find that interesting is that before we were called Catholics, or Christians, the early followers were referred to as people of the way.

What made others first take note of them was the distinctive way they lived and in particular their care for the needy. Two thousand years later when non-Christians look at us, is there anything about our lifestyle that makes us distinctive and attractive. Sure we Christians are among the richest people in the world financially but do we still stand out as a people who live a different way, grounded in the life and teaching of Jesus Christ.
