I have a plane trip coming up, and with it, my standard pre-flight anxiety.
It’s not fear of flying (I don’t love hurtling through low orbit, separated from death by a few inches of aluminum and plexiglass, but I tolerate it)—it’s fear that God may put someone in the next seat for me to evangelize.
Some people—extroverts, probably—relish the opportunity to witness, but not me. I’m just no good at it. Give me a theological point to argue, an enemy of the Faith to fight...
"Time is not our own, and we must give a strict account of it."
~ Toribio Mogrovejo, of noble birth, educated at the finest schools, law professor at the University of Salamanca, Spain; who became a tireless missionary, baptizing nearly 500,000 as Archbishop of Lima, including St. Rose of Lima, St. Francis Solano, and St. Martin of Porres. Canonized in 1726.
