Homily given at Christian Brothers College High School, Town and Country, Missouri

“There was no duplicity in him.” What a tremendously wonderful compliment. It seems that if there is a quality that is needed today, it is that we have no duplicity. What would our world be like if we knew we could trust each other because we were genuine and sincere? What would our conversations be like if we did not take the opportunity to insult those with whom we disagreed, or did not share something unless we knew it to be true? What if, heaven forbid, we even realized that we could disagree with someone, but treat them with respect? We will need to summon courage to be sincere. But if we are always a disciple of Jesus, we make it more likely others will believe too.
