THIS WEEK'S CATECHESIS SUMMARY
Lenten Interlude: Theodicy-3. Conclusion. We concluded the topic of why Jesus had to die, then rise—why some simpler, painless approach was not chosen by the Father, accepted by the Son: The universal truth that “[U]nless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains just a single grain; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.” (Jn12:24) We also considered why “fixing” this broken world filled with pain, tragedy, and evil, by removing at least its deliberate evil, is not God’s way. Nor is it an approach we would choose when we realize the implications for fallen man: A loss of freedom, if kept from sin, or a loss of the chance for repentance if allowed to sin and directly punished. We closed this session and also this Creedal catechesis program per se, noting the timely coincidence of this theme with both endings: Each can become the tale—a fall into the earth, that may later bear fruit. Reflection: Your now almost completed Lenten practice this year-–to do what is good, avoid what is not good: Why limit it only to Lent?
