The famous fool

St Paul VI said people listen more willingly to witnesses than to teachers. Jesus warns against the self-importance that witnesses only to a person's sense of entitlement. In our age, the media in general and social media, in particular, give a megaphone to anyone with a message. Showiness can impress, while the poor widows can easily go unnoticed. Help me to know the difference between the famous fool and the unpretentious witness to the truth.
