They painted the fire hydrants in the neighborhood. They used to be green with white "hats". They were cute, indiscreet, and blended in with the landscape. Now they are red from "head to toe". They are bold, colorful, and clash with the landscape. It was probably hard to find them before; now they scream "here I am" to those who need them and need to find them.
We are like the fire hydrants in terms of our faith. Do we hide the fact that we are Catholic and blend in with those around us? Or do we shout out our faith with our words and actions so that it can't be mistaken that we are Catholic?
"The wicked flee though none pursue; but the just, like a lion, are confident." - Proverbs 28:1
What color is your "fire hydrant"? Are you pale and drab? Or bold and colorful?
