Memorial of Saint Boniface, bishop and
On first reading, Paul's words sound like a ringing call to perseverance
in mission, a dedication that nothing can shake, and the satisfaction of a
life well lived. If, however, we see Jesus telling us not to throw our
pearls before swine or commanding us, in certain circumstances, to shake the
dust of a particular situation from our sandals, we might have second thoughts.
And if we go a little further, we might wonder how much Paul's words at the
end of today's readings are reflected in that horribly self-centered song,
"I Did It My Way."
