In this Weekend’s Readings, we have the great prophet, Moses. Even God said, “There is none like my servant Moses.” How would you like to receive a compliment like that from God: “There is none like my servant, [your name]?” In the First Reading, we have the sacrifice of Abraham’s son, Isaac. Most of us learned about this story in elementary school. Abraham waited and waited for an heir. When he finally received a son, God asked him to kill him. What! Knowing the history of Israel at this time provides much insight. For people of today, it shows how challenges can strengthen one’s faith. Whether it is an illness, financial instability, diminishment with getting older, or just plain growing up, we are called like Abraham to place our trust in God. This Friday, March 1st, the children in Faith Formation will lead the Stations of the Cross at 7:00 p.m.
