Voice of the Day: Faithful and Courageous

By Administrator 02-23-2007

Those called by God to proclaim the good news need to be both faithful and courageous. Our prophetic call, however, does not come without a cost. Managing the enmity of foes and friends requires a teachable spirit and contentment with failure. We are not usually in a very teachable mood until life has whipped us into an attitutde to learn and a willingness to change; then God can get our undivided attention.

- Charles G. Adams
excerpt from "The Priestly Faithful and Prophetically Courageous" (essay).
