(Saint Bede the Venerable, Priest)
As Paul and the apostles preached the Word from city to city; Day after day the churches grew stronger in faith and increased in number. Acts_16:1-10
And yet, as Jesus predicted there would be much opposition as well.
Jesus said, “Remember the word I spoke to you, ‘No slave is greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will also keep yours. And they will do all these things to you on account of my name, because they do not know the one who sent me.” Jn_15:18-21
And all the while, as they evangelized the world, the Holy Spirit would guide them and protect them – just as He does us, beloved! So fear not! Your life is most precious in God’s hands. Keep the faith!
