Thursday, April 12, 2016: Today, in Mercy, we hear an amazing promise in John’s Gospel. We who believe have already been given the gift of eternal life.

At the same time, the words are scary. Is my faith strong enough? What about when I doubt or question God? Faith is not about surety. It is about the choice to trust and live in a way that gives witness to that trust. Do not fear your doubts and questions. God is big enough for all of them. Give them to God and as the poet Rilke says:

Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves like locked rooms and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue.”
