you know nothing

26 Sep


Bernadette was not very bright, to say the least. She was uneducated about the things of God and found learning very difficult. In a movie about her, the parish priest who was preparing her for first communion said, in a striking line with striking insight, “You know nothing but you understand everything.” Poor, uneducated, a little girl who was nothing in the sight of all in her world! Why was she chosen to be the one to whom “The Lady” would appear? How does that cause us to think about why God gives us what he gives to us?
