So today at Mass my pastor gave an impassioned biography on St. Augustine. Being in the Diocese of St. Augustine quite appropriate. Really quite a good short biography with some spiritual depth.
Yet while he was delivering it I was thinking “Ok, I know all of this – speed it up I wan’t to get home to eat”. Even while admiring his delivery, I kept thinking this.
Then realization hit me with the “It’s not all about you” and that more than likely others were gaining good information thoughtfully delivered with spiritual insights. It is quite annoying how often these “I’m such a jerk” epiphanies hit me.
