There’s something really mysterious about the Christian life. How could St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta keep smiling in the midst of all the suffering she encountered working with the poorest of the poor ? Or what about St. Maximilian Kolbe a prisoner in Auschwitz who volunteered to take the place of another prisoner who was condemned to death ? Who does that ?
Believers do, that’s who !!
You are a mystery as well. When you were baptized you were born from above and filled with the Holy Spirit.
That same Spirit that empowered Mother Teresa and Maximilian Kolbe lives in you. He is the same mysterious presence that moves you to acts of kindness when you could just as easily walk away. He is the one who gives you patience with your spouse and family during this quarantine.
Every time you follow the prompting of the Holy Spirit, you become a little more mysterious to the people around you, AND a little more attractive. With every act of kindness or patience you become more like Jesus who was the most mysterious and attractive person who ever lived !
