In Matthew Kelly's talk, "The Seven Pillars of Catholic Spirituality" he suggests taking ONE thing from father's homily on Sunday and to write it down in a journal. He says after one year of going to mass you will have an amazing guide to spirtuality.
Every week, I'm going to add the ONE thing I learned from that Sunday's mass. What ONE thing did you hear this week end.
I've been slacking the last couple of weeks. I already forgot my ONE thing from the first week of ordanry time but here is my one thing from last Sunday plus a special one from my Aunt Joy's funeral yesterday:
Aunt Joy's Funeral at St Peter the Apostle in Joplin, MO by Fr. Jay: "We should live life right up to the edge but to be careful not to go over."
2nd Sunday of Ordinary Time, 5:00 Saturday Evening mass at Holy Family: "We are running out of time so the time for change is now--the time for grace is now."
Epiphany--6:30 Sunday evening mass at St. Andrew's the Apostle: "If we are truly living out our Catholic identity then we should expect to be a little weird."
Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God, 5:00 Saturday Evening mass at Holy Family: "God calls us to peace in the midst of chaos."
