Homily #141119b ( 13min) Play - Fr. Alan connects the Gospel parable of the gold coins with the story of St. Agnes' life who was the sister of St Clare, the founder of the Poor Clares in cooperation with St. Francis. She renounces many worldly coins that her natural family had and joins this great religious family and multiplies many spiritual coins from the coin of grace given to her.
