Against the Goad

Great antiphon from the Office of Readings during yesterday's Feast of the Conversion of Paul:

Who are you, Lord?  I am Jesus whom you are persecuting; you harm only yourself by kicking against the goad.


If that isn't a fair assessment of my own spiritual life, I do not know what is:

I search for the Lord; He reveals himself to me and notes my own persecution of his followers.  He then points out that such resistance is harming myself more than anything else.
