If Jesus was a blogger, I imagine that title would be his title for today’s gospel reading. If the disciples would just believe what Jesus was saying about everything, they wouldn’t have left. Isn’t it funny how true this still is today? If we would just believe everything that God has revealed through His Holy Church, we would never leave. When we look at the real presence of Jesus in the Sacrament of the Eucharist, the call to repentance in the Sacrament of Reconciliation, and the many Sacred devotions that have been revealed through the Saints over the past 2000 years, we could see a Catholic faith that is hard to follow, or we could see a Catholic faith that makes following Jesus easy, if we would just believe that the revelation is true. What is it that is being revealed to you today about the church, that you find hard to accept? How would it be made easier, if you would just accept it and believe. In today’s world we are told to look at everything with a discerning eye, and that is good, for things of this world. However, when it comes to things of the kingdom of God, we should just accept them, and belief becomes easy. We could leave like the disciples that left Jesus did, but what became of them…Who were they?
I pray that the whole body of Christ comes to a greater understanding of Jesus and what he is calling us to do with our lives, through the devotions and truths that have been and will be revealed through the church. I ask this, as always, in the name of Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit…Amen!
