Twelfth Sunday of the Year

The phrase “Do not be afraid” occurs 365 times in the Bible. It was also the clarion call of St Pope John Paul II. Today’s Gospel addresses a certain kind of fear - the fear of witness or testimony. The twenty-one Coptic Christians killed in Libya in 2015 were invited to renounce their faith but they refused and were beheaded. Men and women around the world suffer persecution, fear and intimidation because of their faith. Every believer is called to give testimony for Christ. Not many of us will be called upon to be martyrs, but we are all called to proclaim the name of Jesus. We are simply men and women who are always prepared respectfully and with love in our hearts to share the reason for our love and joy.
