Spiritus Patris loquitur in vobis (Mt 10:10)

In Latin version of this verse we read that the Spirit is speaking in us - not through us. When we know that, we remind ourselves one more Latine sentence: Contemplata aliis tradere (The things contemplated, we transmit to others).
Joining together this two versions we get deeper meaning of Jesus' saying: First we hear the Spirit speaking in our soul, and then we - as Saint Stephen - proclaim that to others. Always these are words with power, but often people do not want to hear them.
