A ‘gut-feeling’ God
By Fr Donald Chambers
While reflecting on this verse from Matthew’s gospel, I recall an incident in late 2019 when a woman in St Peter’s Square literally held on tightly to Pope Francis’ hand, almost pulling him to the ground.
I think that she was so excited and overjoyed at the prospect of touching the Pope that she went overboard, almost endangering his life. Similarly, it is with the same joy and excitement that Christians should embrace the Kingdom of Heaven, resisting any desire to relinquish it.
