We live in a society whose basic premise is that reality is only that which can be seen, touched and quantifiably measured. Since we have exalted our human intellect to supremacy, even as people of Faith we are sometimes too quick to discount things which our own reasoning cannot fathom.
I love to ask the question, “Do you believe it is possible to love pigs more than Jesus Christ?” The answer is, of course not. Why do you ask such a foolish question? Well, I often wonder why those people, in today Gospel, would ask Jesus Christ to leave their town just after He cast out a legion of demons into a herd of swine.
