My Bible class reconvened after a 2 week Easter break. During that time, one young man was Baptized, Confirmed, and received his first Holy Communion as he entered into the Catholic Church at the Easter Vigil. The people who attended commented on what a beautiful celebration it was. It made them really appreciate and rejoice in their Catholic faith. Another man was accepted into the diaconate program and will begin his 5 year formation in the fall. And one young woman said she went to Paris. She loves the Notre Dame cathedral and when she saw it had burned, she had to go see it. She showed us pictures of when she was there before the fire and a couple of pictures of what the outside looks like now. I thought about the extraordinary faith of these 3 people and the different ways in which that plays out in their lives. What a wonderful, diverse God we have.
I Found God today in the different ways faith is expressed.
