The two marks of a real saint
Tuesday in the Third Week of Easter
In today’s homily, Fr. Ron shares the two marks of a saint: the saint makes their life a gift to others and also make their death a gift to others. They die without anger and bitterness embracing death.
First reading is the stoning of Stephen, the first martyr of the Church. He places his future in God trusting completely. Stephen’s death is very similar to how Christ died. He makes his death a gift to others.
Ps 31:3cd-4, 6 and 7b and 8a, 17 and 21ab;
