St. John XXIII

Luke 11:1-4

I pride myself on being a "self-made man". I have taught myself many things. When I was about 12 years-old I taught myself how to ride a unicycle. After a lot of practice and a lot of failures I was able to leave the balancing poles behind and set out to ride all over the neighborhood.

Luke 11:5-13

In today's Gospel Jesus says, "...what man of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone?  Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent?"What man indeed?
