“To one who has Faith, no explanation is necessary.  To one without Faith, no explanation is possible.”

–     St. Thomas Aquinas (1225 – 1274), Italian priest, theologian, philosopher and jurist

There is only one quote that repeats in The Daily Difference on the same day every year, and it’s this one.  With Faith, no explanation is necessary and without it, none is possible.

Power.  Ful.  Stuff.

Belief and Faith are first cousins, and the upper-or-lower case letters used in this post are intentional.  By that I mean Faith is more of a verb in this context than belief, but Belief is the foundation upon which true Faith is unleashed.  And, combined, they make the matter of explanation moot.

In our workaday lives, what we believe (that’s a lower-case “b”) impacts what we can accomplish.  In every aspect of our lives, what we Believe (upper-case “B”), dictates who we are.  In it’s inexplainability (I made up a word!) Faith provides its followers peace, clarity and purpose.

Unapologetically, on this Good Friday, when we mark His death, and on Easter Sunday, when we celebrate His resurrection — I understand that the die is cast, the game is over, the victory is won, and destiny is guaranteed.  No explanation is necessary.

In honor of the events of the next three days nearly 2020 years ago, may your families be together, may your souls be well-kept, happy and fulfilled — and may we celebrate under the comfort of the sacrifice and miracle of the first, greatest and ultimate Difference Maker.
