“To one who has Faith no explanation is necessary. To one without Faith no explanation is possible.”
– St. Thomas Aquinas
It bears repeating. To one with Faith no explanation is necessary. To one without Faith no explanation is possible.
To some degree, in our workaday lives, what we believe dictates what we can accomplish. In the grander scheme of life, what we Believe (upper case “B”) dictates who we are.
A friend of mine and Brother in Belief suggested the Twitter hashtag “#itisdone” for Easter. And, he’s right. It is.
It. Is. Done.
No greater gift could ever be given. No level of appreciation could ever be enough.
Yet we’re not called to appreciate. And we’re not called to reciprocate. We’re called to love. To follow. To Believe. To live with the knowledge that with one, incredible, heroic feat borne of love — nothing else matters.
Whether no explanation is necessary, or whether no explanation is possible, it is done.
And no greater difference will ever be made.
