God Can Do Anything He Wants!

Last night I taught our RCIA class about the Eucharist. Much of what Catholics believe about the Eucharist can be mind-boggling to those who are new to the faith. How can Jesus be fully present in every consecrated host is certainly a question that challenges our mind. Who can really understand how bread and wine becomes the body and blood of Christ.
Yet who are we to question God. Take a drive out to the country on a very clear night and look at the number of stars. It seems like we can see millions, yet they are so far away we are looking into the past. The nearest star is Alpha Centaur i a mere 4 light years away, not far compared to the rest of them yet 4 light years is more than 23,462,484,000,000 miles if my math is correct. Try multiplying 186,000 x 60 x 60 x 24 x 365. Can you imagine such a distance? Yet that is the closest star besides our sun a mere 93,000,000 miles away. How vast is space?
When you think about the vastness of the universe and realize that God created it all and we only see a small part of it; how can we doubt God’s abilities? How can we question whether God can do something or perform a miracle. If He created the entire universe why would be think He would be incapable of healing a disease or providing what we need.
Try to remember who God is, how powerful He is, what He is capable of and believe.
