Daily Inspirations

Friday, October 9

Whoever is not with me is against me,
and whoever does not gather with me scatters.
—Luke 11:23

Seven bishops were sent to convert the citizens of Gaul in the third century. They were put to death in Paris. Today, Denis, one of those bishops, is the patron saint of France. Why do we so often kill our heroes first and honor them later? Saints are easier to deal with when they’re dead and gone. But their challenging example remains to haunt us.
