Homily: 10 February: 5th Sunday in Ordinary time

Beginnings matter. The annual parade of ‘first day of school’ photos that appear on Facebook at the end of January is testimony of this. The best I saw this year was a ‘then and now’ compilation from friends of mine with three children who have recently returned to Australia. The two photos – one of 5 years ago in another country, and the other now – were similarly staged. But there was the delight of different uniforms, changed faces, and a new day dawning. Beginnings – even small, personal ones – matter.
