Friday, Easter Wk II: "they did not stop teaching and proclaiming the Christ, Jesus"

rejoicing that they had been found worthy to suffer dishonor for the sake of the name.
--Acts 5:34-42

Whoever is called "to teach Christ" must first seek "the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus"; he must suffer "the loss of all things. . ." in order to "gain Christ and be found in him", and "to know him and the power of his resurrection, and [to] share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, that if possible [he] may attain the resurrection from the dead".
-- CCC 428
