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

In my ministry as a priest, I have have listened many times to parents who are sad that despite their best efforts, their adult children do not practice the faith. But we need to remember that faith is a gift, and as a gift, must be received by the recipient. Saint Monica today reminds us the prayers of a mother (or a father) are powerful indeed in bringing back an adult son or daughter to faith.
