My last homily was an effort to admit my own weariness without discouraging parishioners, while letting them know that I share at least some of their struggles. I received some remarkable responses and with the permission of the writers, I’m going to share them below.
I’m a bit hesitant to share some of the more flattering personal comments; I do so not to blow my own horn or Fr. Jeff’s, but rather to demonstrate how we can be strengthened by others.
It’s obvious that our parish community faces challenges in solidarity with one another. I can’t say how grateful I am for that.
