Fr. Lyle Konen, C.Ss.R. Daily Reflection:

Fr. Lyle Konen, C.Ss.R.-Seattle, WA

An early missionary always encouraged me to use stories in my homilies. And he reminded me that is what Jesus did. Of course in His days there were no books for ordinary common use. Besides, very few were able to read. There was no television. No ipods. No kindles. So how were the people to remember His teachings? He told stories. He used events, nature, experiences, to teach. People would remember them. Reflect on them and change their life. Today’s gospel is about something with which everyone would be familiar. Can you see Jesus teaching you in your life’s story?
