Excerpts from an Email to My Priest (Father X)

Hi,
I wanted to add that, besides having a delightful visit with your mom and brother, I was glad I came to (church) because the Gospel and your sermon today had a most excellent message for me: "Do not fear, only believe." It’s in line with what I have already been exploring in my blog...

...I hadn’t noticed before how much I had distanced myself from my fellow congregants. I realize there has been a vicious cycle of having nothing to give, because I haven’t been spiritually fed, and not being fed because I’ve not given anything...

You posed the challenge of living what I profess to believe. You know me well enough that I will take that challenge and run with it, hopefully with not too many stumbles.
