Fifth Sunday of Easter

"Have I been with you for so long a time and you still do not know me?" How many times each day does our Parent repeat this line? So many words and deeds devoted to our pursuit of the divine, and yet we still struggle with the basics: faith, hope, and love. It's all there, right in front of our noses! But instead we scheme, and plan, and toil away, trying to build a kingdom that is already built. How much grace do we ignore, because we are too busy doing "God's" work to notice? Stop! Just stop, let go of the program, and simply trust. "Lord, let your mercy be on us, as we place our trust in you."
