Do You Know Him?

An Everyday Stewardship Reflection for the 21st Sunday in Ordinary Time 2017 Sometimes when I ask one of my children about who they were with or about a classmate at school they answer me with, “You don’t know them.” Apparently, since I do not know him or her personally, I do not need to know … Continue reading Do You Know Him?
