FEARING NO ONE (Mt 10:26-33): 22 June 2008 (Twelfth Sunday in Ordinary Time)
The first line our Lord speaks to his disciples struck me: “Fear no one.”
“Sure,” I catch myself in mid-thought. “Easy for you to say.”
Not so easy for the rest of us. We are no strangers to fear. We know what it’s like to be scared. It’s not a pleasant experience—unless you’re one of those people who get their kick out of screaming their lungs out during horror and slasher movies.
