Gospel Sentence
“Sing to the LORD; praise the LORD! For he has delivered the life of the needy from the hand of evildoers.” (Jeremiah 20:13)

Reading
““So have no fear of them, for nothing is covered that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known. What I tell you in the dark, say in the light, and what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops. And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows. So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven, but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 10:26–33)

Meditation
“Fear not,” says the angel to Mary as she is told she will bear the Christ in her womb. “Fear not,” says the angel to the shepherds, “for behold, I bring you good news of great joy…” “Fear not,” says Jesus to His disciples as He sends them out, assuring them of their worth before the Father. Fear not. Christ has claimed us. We are His.
