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.
So, I'm going to post my ONE thing I took from father's homily every time I go to mass and post it here. I was going to start last week but things got crazy so you get a two for one.
Last week, we had a substitute priest. It one the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God. The ONE thing I took was, "God calls us to peace in the midst of chaos."
Yesterday--the Epiphany---we went to 6:30 mass at St. Andrews and the ONE thing I took was, "If we are truly living out our Catholic identity then we should expect to be a little weird."
