Saints Perpetua and Felicity

Luke 9:22-25

Jesus is not so out of touch with the times as at first it might seem. Study his life, listen to his message; and we will find that he, more than anyone else, was the opponent of repression and the advocate of freedom. His quarrel is not with self-expression, per se, but rather with a kind of self-expression that diminishes life and ultimately destroys all that is big and beautiful in the human heart.
