Catholics “think big” by “thinking small”.


                                               We were once smaller than a dot like this:   .

Catholics “think big” by “thinking small”.  At our conception, we were smaller than the period at the end of this sentence.  That’s it!  All the DNA from our parents, grandparents, and ancestors was packed into that tiny space.

We downloaded nutrients from our blessed mothers and grew according to the blueprint that was far, far  smaller than the . that we once were.

Our spirit was there, along with our immortal soul.   The electric charge that is our spirit increased in power.  But our soul remained the same size, an ephemeral iota around which all else grew.

When we focus on our tiny soul, we are reminded of how “small” God was said to be by a man blessed to “see” Him.  How “big” is God?  Elijah told us:

1 Kings 19: 12  “Then the LORD said: Go out and stand on the mountain before the LORD;  the LORD will pass by. There was a strong and violent wind rending the mountains and crushing rocks before the LORD—but the LORD was not in the wind; after the wind, an earthquake—but the LORD was not in the earthquake.  after the earthquake, fire—but the LORD was not in the fire; after the fire, a light silent sound.”

God, Who made the mountain-smashing wind, was “a light, silent sound.”  Some translate it as “a puff of wind”, or “a gentle breeze”.

God did not “grow” when He brought the Cosmos into Creation.  Our soul, “made in the image of God” within our personal “cosmos”, is similar.  Within the vastness of our mind and body, our tiny soul, “made in the image of God” is a tiny “puff”.  It is still small enough to fit into the tiny . that we once were.  There was room to spare among the hundreds of trillions of atoms that made us when we were this size:  .

Our mind, body, and spirit will die.  “Dust to dust”, our soul is smaller than a speck of dust.  If we have obeyed The Decree of “the  puff of wind”, we may be with Him forever.

Catholics “think big” by “thinking small.”  We see that God is in The Body and Blood of every Catholic Communion since The Last Supper!
