Timothy & Titus

This morning's antiphon for the Canticle of Zechariah, proper to today's memorial of Timothy and Titus, caught my attention.  The Church prays:

Proclaim the message, insist on it in season and out of season, refute falsehood, correct error, call to obedience, but do all with patience and sound doctrine.

There is plenty upon which to comment here, but I think it best to allow Mother Church's wisdom to sit on its own.  I will just say this: the confluence of the liturgical schedule with one's frustrations is at once both felicitous and haunting.
