Ezekiel 10-12; Hebrews 11

Hebrews 11:1 “Faith is the realization of what is hoped for and evidence of things not seen.” Richard Dawkins and Sam Harris would scoff at “evidence of things not seen”, believing that if science can’t verify it, there is no evidence.  What I love about the Catholic faith is we are called to bring reason to the table, not ignoring Jesus’ admonition to love God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength. Our minds can produce powerful evidence supporting things not seen.  Quoting C. S. Lewis, “If you want to remain an atheist, you have to be careful what you read.”  Also faith is a gift: you have to want that gift and pray to God for it.

GOD’S ANSWER: The thing I like about atheists is at least they take a position; i.e. they are not the “neither hot nor cold” that gets My Son’s dander up.  Their hearts are closer to Me than the lukewarm Sunday-going card punchers – you all know who you are.  I love you all too, but give Me a little something back…you know, for the effort.
