(Q) 1.   Who made me?    (A) God made me.

 

(Q) 2     Why did God make me?   (A)  God made me to know Him, to love Him, and to serve Him in this world and to be happy with Him forever in the next. (“Penny Catechism”)

 

   

 

‘What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man conceived, what God has prepared for those who love Him.

(1 Cor 2,9)

 

 

For what will it profit a man, if he gains the whole world and forfeits his whole life.

(Mt 16.26)

 

 

These few extracts, there are of course many more, taken from the Scriptures, and the teaching of the Church and from the lives of the saints can serve to keep in mind our true destiny.

Unfortunately, during life’s journey, we find we can be easily distracted from such thoughts and so stray from the right path.

Perhaps a new question (2a) could be added to the Catechism!

(Q) Given our predisposition to make a hash of the life God has so freely and lovingly given us, and to trash the world given by Him in which to live our lives- Why is He so patient with mankind?

The answer ( truly) – God only knows!
