A couple of one-liners from the last 24 hours are still with me. From Bible Study last night...the topic was Matthew 6, and personal piety - about doing things because God sees them, not because the world sees them. The point there was "Who you are when you are in private, is who you really are." Not the personna that the world sees.
From the homily this morning...the Gospel was the one about the shepherd leaving 99 sheep to go after 1 lost sheep. "Even if you were the ONLY person who ever sinned - the only sinner in the world - Jesus would have still suffered and died - for YOU!" That kind of personalizes it a bit.
