Understanding The Word

Then he opened their minds to understand the scriptures. (Luke 24:45)

The Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) explains something very interesting and intriguing. It says that “the Word of God is not a written or mute word.” It is incarnate and living. [Based on CCC 105-108].

Living The Gospel …

That’s not just theology. It has practical implications.

As long as we persist in picking apart the words of the Bible, seeking proof texts to support our personal beliefs, we risk missing the real Word of God. He is the Divine One who took on our flesh and lives today in His church and in His people.

Our job is challenging, but it’s not really so hard. We are not called to share the Gospel so much as we’re called to live the Gospel. God knows that we cannot help but doing what we are! When we accept the mission to be who God made us to be, we find that the Holy Spirit actually shares the Gospel through us.

If we will “be,” He will “do.”


Being who you are and understanding that the Word of God is alive within you makes you a whole, new person. You realize that it’s actually interesting and exciting to be you! And you also realize that it’s cool to be Catholic! COOL2B!
