Homily for 22 Apr 2016

22 Apr 2016

Thomas was getting all upset because he didn’t know where he was going.  He knew that Jesus was the Way to get there . . . but he didn’t know what the destination was.  And that was bothering him.

And I suppose we can relate to that.  You know, if we’ve ever planned anything—from a career, to family, to a vacation—we probably had an idea of where we were going.  We like to plan; we like to know what’s up ahead.  It’s why we don’t like to drive behind semis; you can’t see what’s coming.  And we can get upset when our view is blocked.

But Jesus says to Thomas (in so many words): I’ve already told you where we’re going, but don’t worry about it anyway—just follow me.

And Jesus says to us (in so many words): Don’t worry about where you going, and what’s up ahead.  Just follow me.  Sit back and enjoy the ride through life; don’t worry . . . I’ll get you to where you need to be.  You have faith in God . . . have faith also in me.
