I'd rather stopped listening because, right off the bat, the homily characterized Jesus' prayer in John 17 as "a stream of consciousness" uttered by a man who "wasn't sure how things were going to play out."

My ears perked up, however, at the description of a woman who went through a religious studies program but, during a visit home, had a blowup with her mom. The older brother was present and noted the inconsistency between what the woman likely knew and how she behaved:
"'You can't even recognize a cup of consecrated chicken soup!'"
And yeah, sure, that's me. I know that.

But it's drawn from literature!
