This picture is from when I was a deacon studying in Rome for a month. I am joined by then deacon, know Father Erik Lundgren. What we were studying at that time was how the Universal Church works (although I am pretty sure that this is a "posed shot") for a travel blog that we had at the time describing our experience in Rome. My homily from this past weekend talked a little bit about the dignity of work, and how it does not make you who you are, so the picture is supposed to show me working. Anyways, below is my homily from this past weekend, I hope you can get something out of it.
