The Deacon's Bench

“If anyone ever compliments me and says, ‘Gee, that was a good homily,’ I learned a long time ago never to ask them why because I get so depressed. I worked so hard on this and I expect them to say, ‘Gee, that was a good insight, a good story…’ but they all say the same thing. When I ask them why it was good, they say, ‘Because I could hear it.’

— Msgr. Lawrence Purcell, Rancho Santa Fe, California, quoted here.
