The messengers of Jesus will be hated to the end of time. They will be blamed for all the divisions which rend cities and homes. Jesus and his disciples will be condemned on all sides for undermining family life, and for leading the nation astray; they will be called crazy fanatics and disturbers of the peace.

Dietrich BonhoefferThe Cost of Discipleship1961 edition, 239.

    O God, by the patient endurance of Your only-begotten on You beat down the pride of the old enemy. Help us to treasure rightly in our hearts what our Lord has born for our sakes that, after His example we may bear with patience those things that are adverse to us; through Jesus Christ, our Lord. LSB 312
