Trust in God

Trust.

You only get it if you deserve it. And even then maybe not.

Trust has to be earned. 

The great saints aren’t just radically different from most of us. They’re radically different from each other. 

But whether they’re modern saints like Mother Teresa, saints martyred in the Holocaust like Maximilian Kolbe and Edith Stein, or medieval saints like Joan of Arc and Francis of Assisi, they all have one thing in common. 

Complete trust in God.

This Sunday’s first reading shows us the relationship between God and His beloved. From the view of God’s beloved. 

It’s got some pretty hard stuff in it, but one thing runs through it all. 

Complete trust in God. 

For so many different people (with such different lives and deaths) to have complete trust in God means one thing. God must have done something to earn that trust.
