Do not deceive yourselves. If you think you are wise in this world, you should become fools so as to be wise.
-1 Cor 3:18
Christians today, like Christians during the first centuries, must have courage and faith in God. They must distinguish themselves from the world about them.
They do this not to condemn the world but to penetrate it with the light and truth of the Gospel.
-Pope John Paul II
O Lord, give me the courage that You gave to the Martyrs of the early Church. Help me to show that courage in my everyday life.
