Homily from the Twenty-first Sunday in Ordinary Time.
So many people have been "raised Catholic, but..." They have never embraced the inheritance of the Faith they have been given. They may even have the answers to all of the questions, but those who can say "I've been raised Catholic, and..." are those who have actually met the living God. We want to be the kind of community where we don't just "know about" God, but a group of people who have encountered the God who is present when we are honest.
