Dear Edith: Confidence in being Catholic

Dear Edith,

How do you find the courage to stand up when people make snide comments about being Catholic? My online presence in social media is VERY Catholic and I am super proud of that and how much it is a part of my identity. But when someone scoffs at me in public or makes a comment about how Catholicism is a lie/corrupt/worthless/etc. I somehow manage to lose my voice and I don’t have the courage to stand up for Christ and the truth. I keep asking Mary to pray for me that I find this confidence, but I don’t know what else I can do.
