Reflection for the Week–April 6

It is crucial to first ask the “why” questions. Push them as far as we can. Study, wonder, and explore. But after our thoughtful investigations take us to the limit, we will sometimes still have no answers. When this happens, we want to shift the focus from “why” on to “how” to live in this world, notably as followers of the Crucified and Risen One. It is the “how” focus that overturns the “why” and becomes primary, while nevertheless the “why” questions remain; they fade into a secondary position.
