“That’s Not A Knife!”

How do you define yourself?  How do you answer the question “who are you?”  Some might say, I’m a mother, I’m a father; others might answer and say I’m a businessman, a banker, a lawyer, a teacher.  Those might be things we do.  But they are not who we are.  Our true vocation was given to us at baptism when we were anointed with oil of chrism, and incorporated into Christ who is Priest, Prophet, and King.  We are all called to be prophets, to embrace this Gospel Love, and to proclaim it to world that desperately needs to hear it, see it, and live it.  A homily given on the 4th Sunday in Ordinary Time, February 3rd, 2013.

“That’s Not a Knife!”:

This Homily was given at Holy Family Catholic Church, 3450 Sycamore Dr., Stow Ohio, where I serve as a Permanent Deacon. If you are traveling through our area, or live nearby and don’t have a church home, please stop in and join us. Weekend Masses are at 5:00PM on Saturday, 7:30AM, 9:30AM, and 11:30AM every Sunday. We also have a 5:00PM Sunday Mass on the second Sunday of each month that is geared towards our teenage members but all are welcome.
