teaching, to be accepted rather than to be analyzed. To be thought

of from a childlike approach to see this existence of the Holy Trini-

ty even if it defies adult scrutiny.

Continuing with this Gospel: Turning to the disciples in private He

said, “Blessed are the eyes that see what you see. For I say to you,

many prophets and kings desired to see what you see, but did not

see it, and to hear what you hear and did not hear it.”

This passage immediately reminds me of Jesus’ statement to Thom-

as: You have seen so you believe, blessed are those who have not

seen, but believe.

If we read and listen to the Gospels with the open faith of a child

we will be blessed with God’s message and we will believe even if

we have not seen.


Dear Lord help me to be childlike when I listen to Your word and

provide for me the awe

to see it. Also give me

the innocence to ac-

cept it and childlike

faith to act on it.
