Praying… In Front Of Others?

First Reading: Exodus 17:8-13
Responsory Psalm: 121:1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8
Second Reading: 2 Timothy 3:14-4:2
Gospel: Luke 18:1-8



As Catholics, one of our more accurate stereotypes is being hesitant to express our faith publicly, whether it's praying before we eat, making the sign of the cross or talking about our faith with people who aren't Catholic.  Our faith, however, is something we should share with joy and integrity, even if we feel uncomfortable or inadequate doing so!



This homily was given at the Sunday 10:00 am Mass at St. Margaret of Scotland Catholic Church in St. Louis, Missouri, where Br. Thomas More will be ministering as a deacon during his final year of initial formation.
