Living, moving and having our being, like tadpoles in the great pond of God, we unfold the truth, and it is this which makes us free.

Speaking to the Soul: The other father

We don’t really know that much about Joseph and I wonder if that causes us to give him the short end of the stick.

Normally, I find great comfort in the cluelessness of Jesus’ disciples. I find it reassuring to note that even those who had the privilege of journeying with Jesus during his life so often missed the point. However, this is one of the few moments in the Gospel where I find the message of the disciples just as poignant as that of Jesus.
