Daily homily thoughts 4/22

Today we hear that Peter and John had a boldness about them. Boldness is not hesitating or being fearful in the face of actual or possible danger or rebuff. It is being courageous and daring. Now what’s interesting is that they are bold not because they are superhuman or ridiculously smart. In fact, scripture says the opposite. They are uneducated and ordinary. Their strength and boldness, its source was not themselves. It was the Holy Spirit. We must plug into that Spirit as they did….so we can be bold….and renew the face of the earth
