Courage means coming out of yourself - rising above the self - placing others first and yourself last.
Today, we all of us need courage to live in accord with our faith and in communion with our God
CClaridad made an excellent point. We do need courage to live and express our faith. Increasingly, our society is becoming more and more secular. It is not fashionable to be too religious. We are asked not to talk about God (we might offend some one!). Yes. We need courage just to live out our lives within the context of our faith.
