The resurrected Son of God left us after just a few weeks – forty days in the Christian tradition.
But there was so much more to learn! There still is, nearly 2000 years later!
At some stage, you have to let your kiddos grow up and navigate the world in their own way.
Of course, you never stop loving your kids, even actively supporting them. Every decision they make can bring you pain or joy, but … it’s important that they establish their own place in the world.
That’s what God has given us, but with far more help than a parent is usually able to give a child.
We have the Bible. We have Tradition. We have Mother Church. We have each other.
God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are even closer than a phone call. They’re just a prayer away. They haven’t abandoned us.
