Friday of the Fifth Week of Lent –
It has never been easy to believe in Jesus. It isn’t now and it wasn’t then. It’s very easy to talk about him, to pay lip service to our faith. But to really believe in him, who he is and what he stands for has never been easy. Our faith does not come to us full-grown. Faith will grow until Jesus becomes more and more a part of us. It is a life-long process. We need to be patient and we need to believe. In the beginning Christianity was not a creed to be accepted. It was a way of life to be lived. And it still is.
