Face of God

February 27, 2015
Dr. Mark Delucchi
San Francisco

I am finding it increasingly difficult to be a practicing Catholic. While I find hope and comfort in the Gospel and the sacraments along with the words and deeds of Pope Francis, I fail to see the Gospel lived out in our diocese all too frequently. I am saddened by the lack of inclusion at both Star of the Sea and (now) at our high schools. But then again, who am I to judge. All I know is that when I look up at the altar at my parish, I see the face of God in the men, women and children who serve; and I see the face of God in the faculty who taught me and who teach my children. My Lenten hope is that, to paraphrase St. Francis, we preach the Gospel at all times, and, only if necessary, we use words.
