We were lovingly invited into serving in a number of ways that fit our gifts and ability to give. Through faith formation and relationships, our children have grown to know their Catholic faith, be generous with their gifts and most especially grow in the relationship with God."

When I was maybe ten or eleven years old, my grandma wondered aloud while driving my sister and me home why Jesus died and remained dead for three days. Without missing a beat, I told her it was because he had to go to hell first. I remember this moment distinctly because she asked me how I knew that and I honestly had no idea and it was a bit of a disconcerting experience for me. The truth is that I'm sure my subconscious was remembering the line from the Apostles' Creed that I had heard (and said) hundreds of times by that point in my life but hadn't really taken the time to actually process. 
 

There are some hilarious memes on the internet of cats shoving their bodies into spaces they don't belong in; boxes, vases, fish tanks, sinks, you name it: if they fit in it, they will sit in it. If you don't know what I'm talking about I wholeheartedly encourage you to google "if I fits I sits" and look through the images. You'll be laughing until your sides hurt.

There have been various sources of confusion and consternation when it comes to the Holy Eucharist lately. Some of them I’ve written about here in my column. There’s the general concern with the low percentage of Catholics who believe that Jesus is really present in this great sacrament. There was a debate over whether or not to identify certain politicians as those who should not be admitted to Holy Communion. In the midst of it all, Pope Francis changed the church’s policy on how and when the Extraordinary Form (sometimes known as the pre-Vatican II Mass) can be used. 

“There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish; but what good are these for so many?” (John 6:9)

 

Can you imagine the apprehension that the boy must have felt, clutching some food, and suddenly being thrust in front of Jesus?  Andrew’s question makes sense, what good is this amount of food when it comes to feeding so many. But he is also thinking as man thinks, not as God thinks.
