Hypocrisy and Humility

So most of us are hypocrites, apparently.  I hadn't given this any thought, until I heard it in church tonight.  Most of us behave contrary to our beliefs.  Going inward on a regular basis can help.  Are you living the way you proclaim?  Are you behaving as if your beliefs matter?

17 million American children go to bed hungry at night.  That fact interferes with my dining.

It's easy to get caught up in life's glamour, the pretense, the drama. It's easy to put forth a product, your dreamed up self, that you think others want to see.  The haves are beautiful, aren't they?

That's a perfect time to get brave, to turn it over, to ask for humility, to get out of your own head and help another.

Along with all that, in his "one-minute homily", Fr. V reminded us to be followers, not just members.
