Saint Stephen, the first Martyr
Gospel – Matthew 10:17-22
“But when they hand you over, do not worry about how to speak or what to say;” Most of our worries are about how to perform in a certain situation. We don’t know how the situation will be and we don’t know what situation we will be when we want to face this situation. So, we have to really work in our faith places, where we can really find ourselves in midst our busy schedules. How to work on it? In the gospel we read, “what you are to say will be given to you when the time comes; because it is not you who will be speaking; the Spirit of your Father will be speaking in you.”. Let the Spirit of the Father speak in us. Let our voice be low so that the Spirit of the Father can really speak in us. In the midst our preoccupations, we have this assurance, that God loves us. Let’s reflect: Let the Spirit of the Father speak in us.
