Homily from the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity. Given at St. Joe’s in Gnesen, MN.

“Realize that you are made for that, you are made to be a gift. That doesn’t have to be romantic. In fact, that’s often the last way it is. Often times the first kind of love you are made for is that you are made to be a gift to the people around you. Think about that: is that how we orient our lives? Is that how most of us set our lives up? Is it to be a gift to others, or is it to just get some more? Is it to be a gift, to pour ourselves out for others, or is the way we set our lives up is to become more comfortable? One of the great challenges, one of the great tasks of life, is how can I set myself up, how can I set my life up so that I’m in a position to be a gift to the people around me?”
