Few Words

In the famous movie “Mass Appeal” Jack Lemmon was playing an older priest who had been more interested in pleasing his people than God, but, then, had a conversion.

So this Sunday he stands up and begins: “My homily this morning will be exactly 30 seconds long. That’s the shortest homily that I’ve ever preached in my life, but it’s also the most important homily I’ve ever preached. I want to make just three points.

First, millions of people in the world are hungry and homeless.
Second, most people in the world don’t give a damn about that.
Third, many of you are more disturbed by the fact that I just said damn in the pulpit than by the fact that I said that there are millions of hungry and homeless people in the world.”

With that, he made the sign of the cross and sat down.

‘To call the spade, a spade’ you don’t need a lot of words, but courage.
