(Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes)
After Eve and Adam’s sin had been revealed to God, came it’s consequences. To the man, God said, “By the sweat of your face shall you get bread to eat, until you return to the ground, from which you were taken; for you are dirt, and to dirt you shall return.” Gn_3:9-24
Thanks, Adam! And all these eons later we are still fighting with moles and grubs, with rocks and roots. We’re still fighting with thistles and dandelions, drought and flood.
And yeah, God gave us the wisdom to invent machinery to help us farm and chemicals to clean out the weeds and bugs. But, OH the chemicals – which are killing us worse than the moles and weeds ever did. And OH, the machinery that takes more work to upkeep than just pulling out the weeds in the first place. Ahhh the endless circles we weave all to end up back in that dirt ourselves.
And where is the relief, what is the answer? The relief and answer are all connected to Jesus, where the food was multiplied, the water was tread upon and the storms died out with a Word. Was all of that just signs and symbols? No He IS our answer. So stop worrying about what you are to eat and what you are to wear, Jesus said. God knows what you need, even before you do! Trust in Jesus and all these things will be added as well! (Mt_6:24-34)
There IS an answer, beloved!
There IS hope.
And it’s Jesus!!!!!
