Lamb among the wolves. The opposition we encounter when we try to spread the gospel and inspire faith in Christ in others is probably not as terrible as confronting wolves. Yet the one who goes out to evangelize will certainly encounter many obstacles. We can ask the Lord to remove these splinters from our lives. Or we can go forward trusting Christ, knowing that for the divine economy our strength is placed in our weakness. In weakness we do not place our trust in ourselves but in God and his omnipotence.

“So I indulge in the weaknesses, the outrages, the distress, the persecutions, the extreme miseries suffered for Christ. Because when I am weak, then I am strong. (2 Cor 12: 10)
