Sunday Meditation – Fight for Souls

“Usually, priests and pastors do not have to fight for souls.  A Catholic couple have a child who is born destined to be the Catholic priest’s parishioner.  When the child is brought to baptism, the priest has one more member in his church without any battle.  The same kind of thing happens in Protestant denominations.  When you don’t have to fight for souls, you don’t value them as much.  You don’t love them as much.  Not every pastor weeps when he loses them, or seeks them when they go astray.  I have fought for you, Helens and Marias and Floricas.  You were my every day’s work and my every night’s prayer.”

Richard Wurmbrand, “If Prison Walls Could Speak,” 35.
