11th Sunday in Ordinary Time

June 14, 2015

THE FRUIT OF WONDER

Jesus had a way of cultivating wonder. One might argue that this sense of wonder – which we most certainly best see in our children – is humanity’s most compelling trait. It is the seed of innovation and progress; the stimulus of love and relationships; and it is what leads us here – to a place where we can encounter that magnanimity of God in a single piece of bread.

Wonder is where poetry and science meet. Wonder is where activity and contemplation are inseparably blended.

It is why every great university is marked by a church – this one in particular is a better example than most. The pursuit of knowledge would simply not be if it was for the sense of wonder that is in us like a tiny seed wanting to grow into something so great that life can make it home there.
