with Fr. Soney Sebastian, SVD
Today we have lots of choices in everything. Some are simple and easy; others are difficult. The important thing is do we choose our life for God or not for God.
Fr. Soney talks about the story in Joshua where the people say they will serve the God of their forefathers. He then goes to the gospel of John, Chapter 6. Jesus asks the disciples if they, too, will go away. Peter answers “To whom shall we go. You have the words of eternal life.”
Today some people are choosing “to go away”. There are many reasons for this. Fr. Soney names a few: poor instruction on what our faith really means, negative witness of leaders and laity, conflicts among church people. But if our faith is grounded in Jesus, then we, too, can answer “You have the words of eternal life.”
Life is complex, but that is OK. It is all right that we don’t have answers to everything. God is there. We can choose God and ask God to strengthen our faith. Tune in to Choose God on:
