March 19 - Wise and Wonderful

Patrick went in wonderful compassion and courage back to the land of his captivity, but he went not without wisdom.

He knew the adversary. Do we?

He knew the danger. We must.

He loved more than he feared. We shall, for perfect love casts out fear.

Here in Cor Unum, we will take the next two days to consider these matters.

Do we know the adversary?

Do we know the danger?

Do we love more than we fear?

Let us remember the words that came to Patrick. He received not a direct “call to the mission field.” God favored him with a plea from the souls he had left behind.

“Holy boy, we beg you to come and walk among us once more.”

Do not our hearts yearn to be so like the Lover of our Souls, in wondrous love and welcoming wisdom, that men and women may step out of their hiding places and their own tremblings to walk with us as we walk with Him?
