Parents/Children; Blessings; Sneakers/Preachers 4.9.19

  • Catechism on roles of parents and children.
  • Pope Francis on Numbers 21: when we become worn out by the journey, we become a target for the evil one. Lent is a good time to focus on blessings.
  • Sneakers, preachers and Christians: is it ok for preachers to wear expensive sneakers? When Father Matthew was a young seminarian, the Oblates of St. Joseph received a red Corvette (they didn’t use it for transportation!).
  • Parallels between Numbers 21 & John 8.
