From today’s Reading (Acts 18:9-18):
‘At Corinth one night the Lord spoke to Paul in a vision, ‘Do not be afraid to speak out, nor allow yourself to be silenced: I am with you.’’
God, in this vision experienced by St Paul, tells Paul not to be afraid and to speak the Truth. And Paul is now in Heaven because he was prepared to heed that call to be a witness to the Father here on earth.
How do I shape up as a witness to the Truth? Am I prepared to speak about Jesus and his love and mercy? Am I prepared to speak about the joy of the Holy Mass and what my faith does for me?
These are all questions we may wish to ponder as we go about our daily lives.
