My godmother used to tell me, “if it of God, it will grow” in many of the life lessons she taught me.
Yes, I have been struggling in my faith lately but many incidences (which are not coincidences) have somehow pulled me back to church. It must have been the prayers of those around me.
“Do you also want to leave?”
Today’s gospel reading and the priest’s sermon was spot on. Do we place our trust in imperfect humans or in God and Jesus?
With all the scandals being exposed in the US, it is easy to have our faith shaken but we must not loose our focus and place our trust in God.
It is trying times but it was not God’s fault. It is clearly a human mistake and we must pray for healing of those affected by the heinous crimes.
