What it means to be rich in what matters to God

In the matter of
God's goodness
we have got to be
irrational.
This is the way it is
with love, for instance,
and with any other
deep down, visceral persuasion.
We go beyond reason,
we do not trust
appearances.
All surface indications
to the contrary
we have got to believe that
God is good,
unfailingly good to us.
Even in the thick
of troublies,
in moments of
dire tragedy,
calamity,
disaster,
God is being good.
This is illogical,
it is nonsense
but it is true.
His goodness
is never one whit diminished,
obscured
or blunted.

- Monsignor James Turro
