Homily given at Christian Brothers College High School, town and Country, Missouri, on November 1, 2019.

Three people. Three religious people. On August 25, 1849, Brother Gelisaire and two other Christian Brothers arrived in Saint Louis. They were brothers of the Christian Schools, whose founder, Saint John Baptist de la Salle faced amazing difficulty in establishing his community. But one man inspired three brothers who came to Saint Louis. And today de la Salle’s vision has taken root all over the world. This was possible through faith in God. Because de la Salle answered God’s call, a community and way of life was available to Brother Gelisaire. His trust created a school that has taken all students who are willing to learn and provided tremendous opportunities. Students at this school have answered the same call from God to do tremendous things. Grace is freely given. God generously invites all to be saved. What will you do to answer God’s call?
