Deacon John Herman preached today’s Masses at the parish. He largely talked about his brother, our parish and diocese’s martyr, Ray Herman.
I was reminded that a young man listened to Jesus and took it very, very seriously. He shifted his life from bringing an agricultural degree back to the family farm to giving up literally everything, including his life.
I looked out over the young people in attendance at Mass today and wondered, which of you will follow in these footsteps?
