It is a gift
And so we must.
But people do not always accept what we have to share.
Faith cannot be forced.
As our Lord Himself reminds us in today’s Gospel (John 6:44-51):
No one can come to me
unless the Father who sent me draw him
and I will raise him on the last day.
It is written in the prophets:
They shall all be taught by God.
Everyone who listens to my Father
and learns from him
comes to me.
May you and I continually ask God that the gift of faith be given in ever greater abundance: to us in our own hearts, to those around us, to those whom we meet, and to the whole world.
