Sometimes when a person thinks about their faith, they can be tempted to say, "I'm a nice person", as if this sets them apart from the not so nice people that do not believe.

Homily given at Christian Brothers College High School, Town and Country, Missouri. Readings for Today. Listen to our other homilies.
