The right mixture of guilt and hope?

Yesterday’s Mass, and Gospel reading, led to an epiphany.

My teaching style is a mixture of guilt and hope.

The Gospel reading and the Homily from Father John – it was a perfect mashup of ideas and revelations.

Father John, intentionally or as a blind spot, uses consistent references of His congregation’s (and humanity in general) lack of proper behaviors.

It reminded me to contemplate my writing and speaking.

i don’t like the style of Father John’s digs – they seem (to me) to lack a loving embrace.

And yet, there are many times when he gives me such hope.
