“We must obey God rather than human beings.” And they remain undeterred even when flogged, ill treated, and imprisoned. Peter and the apostles proclaim courageously, fearlessly, what they have received: the gospel of Jesus. And what about us? Are we capable of bringing the word of God into the environment in which we live? Do we know how to speak of Christ, of what he represents for us, in our families, among the people who form part of our daily lives? Faith is born from listening and is strengthened by proclamation.
– Pope Francis, The Church of Mercy
