Homily for the 28th Tuesday in Ordinary Time, Memorial of Saint Theresa of Avila, at Christian Brothers College High School, Town and Country, Missouri, on October 15, 2019.

Sometimes we can draw conclusions about people based only upon external actions. And while part of this is normal, if we give it a little reflection, we often realize that making such a judgement on scant evidence means that we do not know much about a person. A focus on only the externals can cause us to miss the fundamental dignity of the internals. We know a person is more than what they do. In our lives of faith, we too must find ourselves concerned not only with what we do, but also with who we are. Our external actions must be motivated by the way we find ourselves driven by internal conversion.
