Break on through

Sometimes the Christians we meet can stand between us and our own encounter with God. The ground is so thick with other people’s rules and hangups that a glimpse of Christ is hard to get.

In today’s Gospel, we meet another seeker who couldn’t see Christ for His followers.

When Jesus returned to Capernaum after some days,it became known that he was at home. Many gathered together so that there was no longer room for them, not even around the door, and he preached the word to them. They came bringing to him a paralytic carried by four men. Unable to get near Jesus because of the crowd, they opened up the roof above him. After they had broken through, they let down the mat on which the paralytic was lying. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to him,“Child, your sins are forgiven.”
– Mark 2:2-5

A way to Christ can be found, even if the Church seems forbidding. Have faith, and persevere.
