Father Mark Taheney gave a 15-minute homily at Star of the Sea parish in San Francisco on Good Shepherd Sunday, May 3.

Here is a 15-second excerpt:

“Even St. John Vianney. Some woman was concerned about a family member, a son who had jumped off a bridge to his death and was concerned he couldn’t get to heaven, and he said, ‘Don’t you worry about him. It’s a long way from the bridge to the water and you don’t know what happened in his soul.’ ”
