2º domingo de Pascua
Cuando estaba en la escuela secundaria, fue un gran
alivio para escuchar al pastor nos dice que la duda es
parte de la fe y debemos esperar a tener dudas de vez en
cuando. Los misterios de la fe son profundas y no pueden
ser totalmente comprendido, por lo que cuando nuestra
mente se ejecutan en un control de carretera que se niega
a ser entendido o someterse a la lógica, que dudan. Es una
reacción natural a las cosas que no entendemos. Su sugerencia fue la de seguir tratando de comprender y apreciar
los misterios de la fe, especialmente la Eucaristía, la Trinidad y la naturaleza eterna de Dios, preguntas que siempre ocurrió en la clase de religión.
La duda nos puede tropezar si suponemos que indica una
falta de fe. La duda simplemente significa que tenemos
que entender más, apreciar mejor o practicar más intensamente. Significa reafirmamos nuestra creencia, obtener
respuestas a nuestras preguntas y aclarar nuestros pensamientos. La duda puede indicar que estamos creciendo,
dejando tras de sí una fe menos madura y profundizar
nuestra vida espiritual. Así que hablar de ello. Compartir
sus pensamientos e ideas con su cónyuge. Aprender y
crecer juntos. Explora el Catecismo, probar diferentes
formas de oración, o estudiar la Biblia. Obtenga lo que
necesita para ser un poco más seguro, un poco menos
miedo y mucho más alegre. Deje que su duda motivar a
fortalecer, compartir y practicar su fe.
