Homily 2012-05-26 - Fr. Anthony Mary MFVA - St. Philip Neri, Priest (Memorial)

Another wonderful homily from Fr. Anthony. Some great humor here!

"Most Excuses for Not Having Homework" Award Angers Student's Mother

"Most Excuses for Not Having Homework" Award Angers Student's Mother 
 I am sitting at my computer (obviously!) fuming, but FUMING about this. If I were a cartoon character, there would be smoke coming out of my ears. 
 I admit that I do not know whether the child actually had made frequent excuses for not having her homework. And, even if that is the case, perhaps her excuses were valid. 
 There is no valid excuse for her teacher's actions. 
 If I were the principal of that school, I would force that teacher to wear an old-fashioned dunce cap for a full day. Of course, she in turn would probably bring suit against me for excessive humiliation. And I in my own turn would ask her, "And just how do you think Cassandra felt?"
 A final note: To be honest, I find it hard to be objective when it comes to a teacher humiliating a child in front of the class. It was done to me all too often.
