God is surprise. God is novelty. God is creativity. We may try to plan our lives however we end up in places we never dreamed of. ~ Fr. Matt
Catholics have no problem with the Eucharistic presence of Jesus Christ. Since it is a mystery, our understanding is imperfect. Scripturally we have the Last Supper and the suffering and death of Jesus on the cross. Both realities are confirmed by the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior.
One thing is seen. Another is grasped. We use the senses of the body and the senses of faith. ~ Fr. Matt
The Holy Trinity of God is the source of the universe. The relationships are deeper than the flimsy triangular lines we use to describe this mystery. The scriptures embody the unshakeable love God has for us. ~ Fr. Matt
The Tower of Babel story haunts us in life. If we do things just for ourselves, our power, our glory, we will be thwarted by the cleverness of God. Being connected with the Holy Spirit gives us the potential that what we are filled with can be shared if only we tip over and low God’s gifts to fill our environment. ~ Fr.. Matt
