we are who we are


Something that Father said during today’s homily gave me pause. This is paraphrasing, I try to write down the meaning and my interpretation of what he said.

He said that each person is different; each person is special. We are all individuals, and only we as individuals can do what we are doing in our lives at the moment.

From this I take it as, we are all ourselves. It doesn’t matter if we are doing a lot or doing just a little. We are the only person who can do that. And it means each person has value, has contribution, has purpose. It’s very important that I can hold onto this. And when Mum is down and sad, it’s also something that I hope gives her strength.
