I'm not sure what the theme
of my homily today ought to be.
Do I want to speak of the miracle
of our Lord's divine transformation?
Not really, no.
I don't want to talk about his divinity.
I'd rather talk about his humanity.
I mean, you know, how he lived his life,
here on earth, his kindness, his tolerance.
Listen, here's what I think.
I think we can't go around measuring our goodness
by what we don't do, by what we deny ourselves,
what we resist, and who we exclude.
I think we've got to measure goodness
by what we embrace, what we create
and who we include.
Père Henri, Chocolat
