It’s funny how you can hear something said 100 times and it’s all just words which, though that have meaning, don’t truly penetrate into our inner being. Then one day your writing one of the features for the magazine and your faced with the question of why? Why does God go to all the bother of creating man? teaching us? adopting us? redeeming us? sacrificing His Son for us? bestowing on us the power to become children of God? keeping careful watch over us? residing in and among us? loving us? weeping over us?
What is man that God should do all of this for us?
I don’t know that I have the answer to that question. The only possibility I can come up with is our capacity to love to such an extent that we are willing to sacrifice ourselves for God and others. And we do it because of faith. A faith that sustains until the end. A faith that lifts us to become something greater than what we currently are. Without that we would be like the secular world using/sacrificing others for our own pleasure.
I don’t know if that is the answer, but God certainly let me see how much He has, is, and will do for us, so I’m a little in awe of man right now.
I don’t even know how to act anymore.
All mixed up in this somehow was the idea of God building the Blessed Virgin Mary a house. Similar to when He built David a house. That house is the Holy Catholic Church.
