A peek inside

The Sundays of Lent, I've been trying to follow the advice of Abp. Fulton Sheen, in a talk he gave about preparing a talk. He proposed writing and rewriting the talk until your notes for the talk take up no more than one page (he was able to get his notes for a live, 30-minute TV broadcast down to a piece of paper no bigger than a supermarket receipt).

What does my homily look like from my perspective? Glad you asked.

It was a very inspiring homily and gave me a new prospective on that Gospel story.

Looking forward to the rest of your "Talks" for Lent.

That's cool. But I have to wonder about your "supermarket receipt" analogy. I have a family of 5, including 2 teenagers. And I use coupons. My receipts are often taller than my third-grader! :)
