My Dear Parishioners:
FAITH AND LOGIC: Faith requires that we trust in the Lord, even when logic and reason seem to dictate otherwise. Elisha, in the First Reading, ignores the logic of his servant who complains that twenty barley loaves will never be enough to feed one hundred men. But, Elisha’s trust in the Lord is rewarded, for, not only was there enough, but there was some left over “as the Lord had said.”
Paul also pleads for our trust to “live in a manner worthy of the call you have received.” This is all the more powerful because Paul is writing while imprisoned, yet trusting that the Lord will be his salvation.
Jesus shows His trust in God by blessing the five loaves and two fishes and then feeding the multitude, much to the astonishment of logical Philip.
May these examples of trust inspire us to continue to live our lives worthy of the call we have received.
Until next time,
