One that night had that man, too, felt the silence of God? Had he, too, shuddered with fear? (7.136)
We're no theologians, but we're sure the answer to this is oh, heck yes. Remember: Jesus even begged God to let him to walk away from the crucifixion because it scared him so much. One thing that made Jesus unique (and a model for martyrs), though, was that he went through with what he believed what his vocation, despite his fear.
