a solid foundation



In our Gospel reading today, Jesus speaks of the importance of having a solid foundation. For his listeners, the solid rock on which to base their faith was the words which he spoke to them and the revelation which was the Word made flesh, his presence among them. For us, it is the words of scripture, his body the Church, and his presence among us still which he promised. Though it may be tempting to wish that we walked in Gospel times and spoke with him face to face, there is no need to be envious of those first disciples. As Jesus said to Thomas: blessed are those who have not seen, and yet believed. Amen.
