THE PADRE'S PORTION 

The Most Holy Trinity

Dear Brothers and Sisters: Let Christ into your life. If not through the front door, then the back. Humans, unlike animals, have been made by God to have a lower state, and a higher state. We spend a lot of effort fulfilling our baser desires for food, drink, and self-preservation. Most Confessions involve the difficulty in controlling our basic instincts. The higher state of Man involved attributes like Truth, Beauty, and Goodness. We give place many times in life to the habits of our lower state. We allow them; we accept them; we even go out of our way to defend them. Our lower state rules the back door of our life. It is normal to think that Truth, Beauty, and Goodness should only be front door qualities. I offer to you that it is ‘Okay’ to be a back door Christian. Does your spouse not like to go to Church? You are free to sneak out the back door, and go to Church. Is this true for your kids? Well, sneak out that back door, and go to Church. Do your loved ones “not” read the Bible? Well, use that back door, and you read the Bible. Let Christ in; any way you can!

                                                                So let our sacrifice be in your presence today
    and find favor before you;
            for those who trust in you cannot be                               put to shame.
And now we follow you with our whole heart,
    we fear you and we seek your face.
Do not put us to shame,
             but deal with us in your kindness                           and great mercy.
Deliver us in accord with your wonders,
         and bring glory to your name, O Lord. 
 
                                                                                                                                                                                  Daniel 3:40-43
