The bishop acts without regard to his personal safety and in full confidence in the provision and protection of God. To live in such bold obedience should be the dream and experience of every Christian. His mission is his preoccupation. Collect the donations from those who have, and give to those in need.

After a spectacular story of a courageous act on the bishop’s part, with of course the usual ideal response (from Cravatte), we are told that the he generally spent his life doing the same thing at the same hours. To be content in constant monotonous service is perhaps more courageous since it requires daily application and re-application.
