I went to Easter Mass today.
I’ve always been an “Easter-Christmas” kind of Catholic. Most of my reservations about the church stem from my struggling with the concept of faith. On an intellectual level I see the bible as a source of moral education. A way to impart good values in everyday life. Because of this, I have a difficult time dealing with the Higher Power concept. However, as I sat in church today, thoughts ran through my head as the priest spoke about giving yourself fully to God in order to fully understand Him. It was at this moment that I truly wanted to believe that God exists. It gave me a sense of relief to believe that I am a part of something bigger.
Faith is a choice. And just like I choose to have faith that Barry Bonds did not use steroids – even if the evidence contradicts it – then I can also choose to believe that God exists. And like my faith in Barry, faith in God makes me FEEL better and I will continue to have faith in both until I find out otherwise.
