In our second reading today St. Peter said, “Always be ready to give an explanation for the reason for your hopes.”
In pondering over what explanation I could give for that, I went somewhat overboard.
Over the last few years, I have given a world of thought to explaining ways I have for standing true to my beliefs. In fact, I have written a 500 page justification of my Catholic beliefs
This book is a personal account. I haven’t written it to convince others. But, calling this account “My Take on Christianity” I find it reminding me of my mother’s flower garden. She wasn’t laying out a garden to amaze or instruct others. She just wanted to combine the little plots to please herself with getting it right.
From my five hundred pages I have selected ten short paragraphs, hoping that they pleasingly come together like my mother’s flower beds.
