Today’s Gospel reading was the story of two disciples who left the city of Jerusalem after the death of Jesus and were on their way to Emmaus. They had even heard that Jesus was raised from the dead and some of their friends had seen Him. But they lacked faith and were on their way out. However, Jesus had other plans and showed up in their lives. At first they didn’t recognize Him, but later they did. Their faith was renewed. In the homily that we listened to, the priest talked about the definition of the word “faith” as told in scripture:
“Faith is the realization of what is hoped for and evidence* of things not seen,” Hebrews 11:1
This thought stuck with me during the day. Then tonight, we all watched the final episode of God Friended Me. It was an abrupt ending for sure, but the major theme was the quest to help the main character re-find his own faith. I felt like I was getting God’s nudges to reflect on the status of my own faith and how I was responding to that.
I Found God today pondering faith in general and in my own life.
