51.1 Our responsibility for the graces we have received.
A responsible Christian cannot allow his dedication to be diminished through a false sense of humility. While the believer is generally reassured by the knowledge of God’s almighty power, he may become unduly discouraged at the evidences of the weakness of human nature. Yet God will repeatedly grant the grace to make even defeat turn into victory. In sum, God will never give up on us. Among those around you, apostolic soul, you are the stone fallen into the lake. With your word and example produce a first ripple…and it will produce another…and then another…and another…each time wider. Now do you understand the greatness of your mission?
