Mattie talked with God about his purpose. And Mattie shared God’s messages to the world. But Jesus was his role model. Through the Eucharist we see the gift of Jesus – we see the thank you to our Father. We also see the Amen – the YES – that Jesus gave our Father.
Mattie strove to say YES. As the hymn goes, “Here I am Lord.” May He help each of us say YES more often.
The Guild thanks St. Bartholomew’s Catholic Church, Pastor Fr. Mark Knestout and his wonderful staff. We also thank our celebrant Msgr. John Enzler who baptized Mattie and gave the homily at Mattie’s funeral.
If you missed the Memorial Mass marking the 17th anniversary of Mattie’s death, you may watch the highlight video below of remarks, the Gospel reading and homily.
