St. John of the Cross

Matthew 11:16-19

In today’s short parable Jesus asks us to embrace an adult faith, faith that is centered in the realization that we are not the center of the universe, that there exists outside of ourselves a sacred entity that breathes life into our beings and animates all creation. Let us replace our doubt with a sense of hope; let us see things not through eyes cloudy with disappointment but in the prism of Christ’s light.
