"I charge thee,( ... ): preach the word, persevere in season and out of season, reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long-suffering and doctrine.
"For the day will come when they will no longer endure sound doctrine, but, after their own lusts, men shall surround themselves with teachers, having itching ears. And they shall refuse to listen to the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
"But watch thou attentively, know how to endure afflictions, do thy works as an evangelist, carry out thy ministry" [2 Tim 4, 1-5]
