Good Morning July 5

Many people like mysteries, dramas on TV, books by mystery writers, and so forth. But these mysteries always have a solution, usually with the good guys coming out on top. But where we don’t like mysteries is in our Christian faith. It is the reason the “why” question comes up so often. Why did God do this or allow that? Or in our sacraments. Jesus said “this is my body, this is my blood”, but we want to explain if or how it really is. It is hard for us to take God at his word, and trust that what He says is true without an explanation.  It all began back in the Garden. God said “don’t eat of the tree” and we wanted to know why. But the heart of faith is taking God at His word, trusting Him, and believing He is our good Father.
