Some weekends I’m convinced I have a great homily, but it doesn’t connect with the students. Other days, I’m not too confident of what I have to say, but it strikes a chord in someone’s life. Many Sundays you just never know if you’ve inspired anyone or not, until further down the road. I do my best to find appropriate words and examples. But I never know what space the listener is on or how the Spirit will work. Like many parts of life, we do our best and leave the rest in God’s hands.
After mass was over, this Sunday was truly a day of rest. Many of the students went into town Trick or Treating, so I didn’t make any rounds. I stayed home and enjoyed the quiet time to read, exercise and get ready for the upcoming week.
