Weekly Message:

SECOND SUNDAY OF LENT
February 25, 2018
          This Sunday our focus is on Abraham and the Covenant of Faith. We use the term faith in many ways. Sometimes we use the term to point to a particular religion. “I am a member of the Catholic faith. The people across the street are members of the Lutheran faith. Those down the block are members of the Methodist faith.” Sometimes we use the term to refer to the sum teaching of the Church. For example, “Our faith teaches us that we have a responsibility to reach out to the poor.” Sometimes we use the term to explain a certain belief, such as “I cannot understand the Trinity, but I believe in it because it is an article of our faith.” Very often, we use the term faith to refer to our trust in another, “I have faith that my wife will pick me up at the airport.”
          The most important use of the term faith, though, is our complete trust in God. This is how faith is used in today’s reading from Genesis. Abraham was told by God to sacrifice his son, Isaac. Yet, God had also told him that he would be the father of many nations. How could this happen if he were to listen to God and sacrifice his son? Abraham had to have faith that somehow God would fulfill his promise.
         
God had told Abraham to do something that seemed utterly absurd. Yet, Abraham had faith that somehow God would work out his promise and his plan. Abraham completely trusted in God even though everything around him and within him told him differently.
 
          “If God is for us, who can be against us,” St. Paul asks in today’s second reading. Life has its challenges, but each challenge can be met and conquered simply by trusting in God to work his wonders in our lives. 
          
          God will take care of you. And He will take care of me. We trust in Him. We have faith in Him. And when the challenges appear insurmountable, when our faith appears weak, we call out with that man in Mark 9:24. “I do believe, Lord. Help those parts of me that don’t believe.” And we trust in God to form with us, as He did with Abraham, a covenant of faith.
