Do not be silent

“Do not be afraid for I am with you,” these words continue to fill the hearts of many to speak for faith and justice and not to be silent.

Do not be silent

By Roshan Goveas SJ
One night the Lord said to Paul in a vision, “Do not be afraid, but speak and do not be silent for I am with you…” Acts 18:9-10

If Jesus had to really tell us today that, “A little while, and you will no longer see me, and again a little while, and you will see me” then we would be afraid to speak and we would be silent, because of the uncertainty of the presence of the Lord.

What makes the difference in our lives and in our actions is the presence of God. The affirmation of Jesus’ presence has been the strength to so many martyrs.

“Do not be afraid for I am with you,” these words continue to fill the hearts of many to speak for faith and justice and not to be silent. May the words of the gospel bring joy in our lives and actions.
