It’s human to prefer the familiar and the known. We hesitate before stepping into an unknown or unfamiliar situation.
And yet, Fr. Michael Mascari, O.P., reminds us that it is God who is in control. The Holy Spirit moves like a wind through our lives and, like it says in the Gospel, we are not sure where it comes from or where it goes.
By our Baptism we become more open to the promptings and movement of the Spirit within our own lives and discover that the unknown is not as dangerous as we thought. Not when we have the Spirit and when we know that God is truly in control.
