Balaam's ass is the example I keep in mind."

This is from 2016.
A priest ministering to a young woman struggling with a former abortion.

2016 - Quote taken from text:
"Fr. Elias said that priests should never be afraid to speak the truth to everyone they encounter so that by hearing the truth they might be given the chance to become free from the bondage of sin by living in the truth.

When priests speak the truth in love, especially truths that might be labeled today as politically incorrect, they are not speaking on their own behalf, Fr. Elias said, but on the behalf of God the Father. And God the Father will make priests “really strong” to reach mercifully into hearts of darkness to bring the divine light of life and happiness.

“This is the challenge for priests today, just talking clearly, straightforwardly and not being scared of the other. Souls are craving for that,” he said. “You see, if mercy stops at your fear, it is not really mercy. If you want to test your mercy, go where it is scary to go.
That is a nice test whether your mercy is real…
That is the final fatherly test of your mercy.” End quote.

Not sure where this is from? It was sent to me by a brother in Christ a bit ago:

I wrote this to my wife about eight years ago:

We're a famous couple, you and I,
I can't say how, to whom or why;
But Sarai and Abram, hand in hand,
Came nameless to their promised land,
Scarce noticed by its settled tribes
Though the ground lay reverent at their feet.


By which I meant that as obscure as we might be as believers in the eyes of the world, our journey in faith is just as significant in God's eyes as was Sarah and Abraham's and by God's grace will have equally lasting fruit.

Galatians 3:7
