02-28-16 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

February 28, 2016
(Third Sunday of Lent C)
Moses said to God, “But when I go to the Israelites and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ if they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ what am I to tell them?”  God replied, “I am who am.”  Then he added, “This is what you shall tell the Israelites: I AM sent me to you.”  Ex_3:1-8a,13-15

It’s funny how we can come up with some of the silliest questions when we are motivated to escape an assignment.  Moses really didn’t want to have to go back to Egypt and face all those people who hated him, let alone try to convince an old friend and arch-enemy (Pharoah) to let go of something he held close (all his slaves).

But God had a ready reply.  I’m not Bob or Tom.  I’m not Abe or Isaac.  I’m not Sally or Sue.  I AM.  Wow!  What an answer.  God’s not I was, nor I will be.  God just IS.  He is with us here and now.  Whenever we turn to Him, there He is.  The trick is, beloved, never to forget!  The more we remember that God IS always here with us, the more often we will fail to find ourselves all alone and flailing about trying to find the answers – by ourselves.  God just IS!  And that’s more than enough!
