Pick yourself up, dust yourself off...

The Church is under attack today, yes, but this is nothing new. It's been under attack throughout history, just as it was in the beginning. We hear about that in the first reading (Acts 13:14, 43-52), where Paul and Barnabas are kicked out of Antioch. What was their response? They shook the dust off and kept going.

They had hope in the Lord. They had hope in joining the great multitude before the Lord, worshipping Him in Heaven. (Rev 7:9, 14b-17) We are not called to fit in with the world. We are called to conform to Christ and follow our Shepher. (John 10:27-30)

Have you listened to the Lord's voice today? We talk so much and rarely stop to really hear Him. Sit quietly in prayer and say only one sentence: "Speak, Lord, your servant is listening."
