For today’s Gospel, Matthew wrote, “No one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son wishes to reveal him.”
We Christians are not the only ones who know tht there is one God ruling the universe. The ancient Greeks believed that there had to be a single creator of all things. They called him “The unmoved Mover.”
When our astronauts flew around the moon The Hebrews, the followers of Islam, and we Christians were the only humans who believed that the same scientific rules held force throughout the universe on the other side of the moon. .
But neither the Jews nor the Muslims, could measure up to Jesus in revealing the Father to us. Jesus astounded his Jewish disciples when he ran forward to congratulate the widow who gave God the only pennies she had to live on. Only Jesus knew the Father well enough to give us the Parable of the Prodigal Son.
