I have to share this video by Father Mike. He had me smiling all the way through it. His honesty and humility shines through as he shares his story about his tattoo.
When I was a teenager, I use to wear a heart shaped patch on my jeans. Embroidered on it was “Jesus Loves You,” and I recall many happy memories of my youth in those jeans. When I got older, I somehow lost that carefreeness and became much more reserved. Today, wearing religious symbols is rare and often for fashion and not based on a religious commitment or belief. Getting a tattoo – I think it’s cool. I’m too old now. Also, I can imagine the teasing I’ll get from my own kids – thinking mom has gone bonkers!
Father Mike’s love for Jesus shines (I give him a thumbs up!):
