It does take bravery to speak of Christ to others. After a brutal few weeks, it will take a bit more inner steel to dare to speak of the Gospel, but we can ask for the Spirit’s guidance:
139. Let us ask the Lord for the grace not to hesitate when the Spirit calls us to take a step forward. Let us ask for the apostolic courage to share the Gospel with others and to stop trying to make our Christian life a museum of memories. In every situation, may the Holy Spirit cause us to contemplate history in the light of the risen Jesus. In this way, the Church will not stand still, but constantly welcome the Lord’s surprises.
Welcoming surprises: this is vital, as it seems to be a frequent tactic of the Almighty.
