Daily homily thoughts, 2/6

Today we celebrate St. Paul Miki and his companions, who on this day in 1597, climbed the hill of their calvary in Nagasaki. As Paul Miki hung on his cross, he gave something of a sermon. He prayed God’s mercy on those who had put him there. He also spoke to them. He said, “Ask Jesus to make you happy.” Now that is beautiful advice for us all.
