Several years ago I went to a family reunion. It was around the time the church was changing the wording in parts of the Mass. This flabbergasted my Aunt Vivian. She was going on and on about how crazy the new wording was. I finally said to her that I did not let it bother me. It did not change my Catholic identity. Her next question to me was “Well, what kind of a Catholic are you then?” I told her I was a Matthew 25 Catholic. I visit the imprisoned, house the homeless, feed the hungry. I just do what Jesus commanded us to do. How do you carry out Jesus’ Matthew 25 proclamation? How do you feed the hungry, visit the imprisoned, clothe the naked, visit the sick, welcome the stranger?
