I can do it myself!

October 21st, 2020

"I can do it myself!" eight-year-old Michael Renninger told his father as he tried to set up the pup tent. "I don't need to tell you what a disaster ensued, but there was no way I was going to ask for help ... Later, it started to rain and the tent collapsed on my face," said Renninger, pastor of St. Mary's Catholic Church in Richmond, Virginia. Renninger admits that just as trying to put up the tent with no knowledge, in today's passage from Matthew 22:34-46 and the previous parables from Matthew, Jesus asks us to do the impossible. But how do we do it?
