John 10:31-42 – Feast of St. Turibius of Mogrovejo

It seems that believing in Jesus would have been easier had we been alive when Jesus was alive on this earth. If we would have only seen him with our own eyes, if we had heard him with our own ears, then surely all of our doubts would have been transformed into instant faith. The basic truth of all of this is: it has never been easy to believe in Jesus. It isn’t now and it wasn’t then. 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 living to be lived. And it still is.
