The following is adapted from Bishop Gerald Barnes homily at the Mass on the Feast of Pentecost held at the Ramona Bowl in Hemet on May 19.
Everything that is great and grand, that is worth doing, has a cost.
We see it in our lives. We see it in the preparation that is needed – sometimes years, weeks or months of practice. We have many children graduating, as well as college students graduating. Those events just don’t come. It’s after years of study and preparation. It’s after people walking with them and helping to form them.
