Mt 10:16 As sheep in the midst of wolves. Defenseless by human means, among the fierce and cruel; among bitter enemies. Wise as serpents. Prudent, discreet. Serpents are very cautious in avoiding danger. Harmless as doves. Guileless and innocent as doves. The dove, peaceful, never preying on other birds, has always been a symbol of innocence.
