You must also bear witness in Rome

May 17, 2018 6:00 am

“The following night the Lord stood by him and said, ‘Take courage. For just as you have borne witness to my cause in Jerusalem, so you must also bear witness in Rome.’” (ACTS 23: 11)

Everyone has a place like “Rome”—far away, different, difficult and hostile. It could be with our sibling or relative; it could be our workplace or the school of our children; it could be a new responsibility received from our superior. Whenever we are sent to places like this, we can do it, knowing Our Lord is with us: “Take courage.” It is not about us, it is about Him: “as you have borne witness to my cause in Jerusalem, so you must also bear witness in Rome.”

“May they all be one as you, Father, are in me and I in you, that the world may believe that you sent me, says the Lord.” (Gospel Acclamation)
