'Time for Understanding'

Sts. Cosmas and Damian

They did not understand this saying; its meaning was hidden from them...

- Luke 9:45

My teacher took me aside the final week of class and said, "In all good conscience, I cannot fail you. You are incapable of understanding these concepts." She wasn't angry. She seemed sad as she stated I would receive a D for the course if I promised never to take a chemistry class again. I was giddy with relief--until those words sunk in. Being let off the hook like that was no cause for celebration, was it? No doubt her assessment was true. I was simply not cut out to follow in Madame Curie's footsteps.
The teachings of Jesus were never meant to be like those chemistry equations--seemingly impossible for some of us to understand. When Jesus' words are puzzling, it is not because the meanings will never be ours to know. Time has a way of revealing the mysteries of God's truth. May we embrace the sacred knowledge awaiting us each new day.
