FR. MYCHAL JUDGE’S LAST SERMON
  to Firefighters on Sept. 10, 2001

  “You do what God has called you to do.
  You get on that rig, you go out and do the job.
  No matter how big the call, no matter how small,
  you have no idea of what God is calling you to do, but
  God needs you. He needs me. He needs all of us.

  “God needs us to keep supporting each other,
  to be kind to each other, to love each other…

  “We love this job, we all do.
  What a blessing it is!
  It’s a difficult, difficult job, but God calls you to do it
  and indeed, He gives you a love for it
  so that a difficult job will be well done.

  “Isn’t God wonderful ?!
  Isn’t He good to you, to each one of you, and to me?
  Turn to God each day–
  put your faith, your trust, your hope and your life in        His  hands.
  He’ll take care of you and you’ll have a good life.
  And this firehouse will be a great blessing
  to this neighborhood and to this city.
  Amen.”
