"So they said to him, "Who are you?""
Again and again, Jesus is asked about who and what He is by those desperate for more and more proof. The crowds would gather seeking miracles. The scribes and the Pharisees would ask questions, determined to find errors that would help support their theories about this strange man. Humanity, even when the Son of God stood in front of them, needed proof.
We live in a human world that still demands proof. Some of our greatest minds are and were dedicated and determined to find answers to unanswerable questions. We always need to know more. And like any wise child knows, there is always a possible follow-up question.
But true faith does not ask for proof. It does not ask why or "Who are you?" So, let's abstain from a need for proof this week. Let's stop shouting out when we are angry or scared for more from God. The Sacraments, the Bible, and the Church are all physical signs of God's love for us. God made us; even our need to know and understand, which is why we have been given those physical signs. But we also need to accept what God has given and choose to believe.
Choose true faith. Abstain from a need for proof.
