Do not be afraid (of the responsibility laid on your shoulders)

Suzanne Aubert understood the anxiety of those in leadership. To one of her own leaders she wrote: “Do not be afraid (of the responsibility laid on your shoulders), as long as you seek only the good pleasure of God in all you do, for God who knows well that of yourself you can do no good, will do Himself His work through your instrumentality, provided you let Him do it freely by your absolute surrender to His Will and your complete disregard of self.” (Aubert to Sr. Alphonsus, 9
