Courage is about speaking the truth despite people calling you names and booing and swearing at you.
This young man Ben Kessler (who is planning to enter seminary) gave a speech at the graduation of University of St. Thomas => a CATHOLIC university. His speech upholds Catholic teaching and yet he was being sworn at… and the principal basically asked him to apologize?!?!?!?!?!!
Pray for this young man. Also pray for ourselves, that we have courage to speak the truth to the jeering crowd.
