I had rather be despised

“And who is there to harm you, if you are zealous for what is good? But even if you suffer anything for justice’ sake, blessed are you.” (1 Pet. 3:13-14.)

“For one day in Thy courts is better than a thousand elsewhere. I had rather be despised in the house of my God, then to dwell in the tents of sinners.” (Ps. 84 (83)).

The New Roman Missal (Fr. Lasance), 1956.
