“They complain,” the Pope said in his homily, because they say, “If he is not one of us, he cannot do good. If he is not of our party, he cannot do good.” And Jesus corrects them: “Do not hinder him, he says, let him do good.” The disciples, Pope Francis explains, “were a little intolerant,” closed off by the idea of possessing the truth, convinced that “those who do not have the truth, cannot do good.” “This was wrong . . . Jesus broadens the horizon.” Pope Francis said, “The root of this possibility of doing good – that we all have – is in creation.”
But rarely do you hear it said by Catholics so forcefully, and with such evident joy. And in this era of religious controversies, it’s a timely reminder that God cannot be confined to our narrow categories.”
This is also my belief.
In fact, Catholic theology teaches that; it just isn’t preached. Because if it is, there’d be a terrible upsetting of the term ‘religion’ as used. ‘One religion’ entails a revolutionization, a reordering of the human person’s belief, cognitive and behavioral systems.
A Team Buhay and Team Patay perspective is a narrowing of God’s law (in as far as Catholic teaching goes).
