We start dinner with a blessing. And then we dig in. But I am struggling to make dinner more than a meal. I want it to be a communion.
As we chatted about all the things filling up our days, I mentioned a Theology of the Body series I was teaching along with our seminarian to the 8th-grade class at St. Louis School. She responded half-jokingly that she thought it would be a great idea to get all the kids from our great big group of friends together and for me to give the same session.
Getting young people excited to be Catholic, I mean. Whether they’re teens or in their 20's and 30's, faith talk is totally foreign to them. I fall squarely in this demographic of young people who think faith is too hard, and I want us to work as a Church and figure out how to make faith a bit attractive for my friends who don’t care.
