Aug 10 – Homily – Fr Alan: St. Lawrence Reaps Bountifully
The Deacon and Martyr St. Lawrence is to Rome what Stephen is to Jerusalem and the early Church--glorious martyr and inspiration to the faithful for all subsequent generations. Like the grain of wheat that falls to the ground, his blood the seed of new Christians yields a bountiful harvest, the fruit of a life sown bountifully in the vineyard of the Lord.
