Homily from the Second Sunday of Lent.
Obedience leads to understanding. Trust leads to courage.
Ever since the Fall in the Garden of Eden, our image of God has become distorted. We find that we don’t naturally trust God. We all have the temptation to imagine that God is simply out to eliminate joy and ruin our happiness. And yet, the entire Bible is God’s attempt to win back our trust. Father Michael Gaitley calls this attempt “God’s School of Trust”.
