Parent Day Mass + lion tattoo

On Parent (visiting) Day, we had a beautiful Mass with all our families.  Our Rector, Fr Michael, had a great homily about the formation of Men here at St John Vianney College Seminary using a story of a wuss getting a tattoo of a lion on his back.  You can’t pick and choose areas that are easy to change.  If you’re getting a tattoo, you can’t leave off some parts … it needs to be complete in order to claim the real thing.  Any real formation requires some level of sacrifice and pain in order for true growth.  It’s not just a Catholic idea, either.  —powerful
