Homily from the Second Sunday of Advent.

Perfectionism can move us from caring to quitting.

Spiritual perfectionism can lead people who care about the Faith and who love God to a place of harshness and hurry so much that they just want to give up. But the Gospel reminds us that God is gentle and patient.
