Last Sunday at church, my pastor Msgr. Torgerson said that when he preaches, he’s speaking to the congregation, but he’s speaking to himself as well. “When I share my words, I share them for you and for me,” he told us.

He went on to talk about Pope Francis, who had said that morning in his homily that you should not preach what you do not practice. He also said that all of us should worry less about what people think of us and simply get busy helping others in whatever way we can.

Right there in my pew, I took out my phone to write down his words in my notes app. I wanted to remember them so I could share them with you as well. I thought they might lift you up, and that they might lift me up again as well.
