Fr. Robert Bengry: Obedience
It’s easy to obey Holy Scripture when I’m doing the cherry picking and the interpreting... it’s easy to obey the Church if I’m listening only to the Pope, Cardinal, Bishop, Priest or Saint I personally agree with. It’s easy to obey a Christ of my own making, but what about the Christ who has made Himself known in Holy Scripture through the Church?
Obedience is valuable though often difficult. Maybe it’s valuable because it’s difficult. How does Christian obedience manifest itself in your life? or does it?
