Daily homily thoughts, 6/6

St Paul tells Timothy today to stir the flame.  This is good advice.  We are to become spiritual arsonists who set the world on fire for the Lord….just as Jesus said.  It is a tall order, because we can’t start fires on our own…but the Lord can!  The Lord IS the fire.  We are simply to create places in our lives, and in the lives of others, where the fire can come….holy hours, bible readings, retreats, service, etc…..
