“Faith comes from what is heard and what is heard comes through the word of Christ.”  Romans 10:17
“’Have no fear before them, because I am with you to deliver you,’ says the Lord.  Then the Lord extended his hand and touched my mouth, saying, See I place my words in your mouth!’”  Jeremiah 1:8-9

These two scriptures always remind me of a special conversation with my dear parents.  My Mom and Dad were on a visit.  One afternoon we started talking about God and religion.  My parents are both strong, faith filled Catholics and have been Eucharist Ministers.  My Dad is a man of very strong opinions.  Most conversations we’ve had in my life seemed to be one sided where I did most of the listening. 

The conversation that day was different.  It was lively, fun, exciting and Spirit filled.  As the talk flowed, my parents seemed to embrace what I was sharing with them about faith.  My Dad told me my Uncle didn’t believe in Christ’s presence in the Holy Eucharist.  His argument with my Dad was this:  “If Christ is really present, we would have to approach Him on hands and knees.”  I said, “Christ is really present.  We know this through faith.  Possibly we should be approaching our communion with Him on hands and knees.”

I was so blessed by our sharing of faith and by what my Dad told me afterwards.  He said, “I already knew everything we had talked about, but I really needed to hear it again!”
