Photo ID

March 21st, 2013 | Posted by Sr. Marilyn Marie in Uncategorized

On a recent trip to the airport to fly to  California I, like all the other travelers, needed to produce a photo ID along with my boarding pass.  The security agent studied it carefully to be sure it matched the person he saw standing before him.

In today’s Gospel reading, Jesus proclaims boldly and without hesitation that His identity is I AM. He knows who He is and is confident that the person others see coincides with that identity.  As a baptized Catholic, I know my identity is to be a beloved child of God and witness of that love to everyone I meet.  Others have a right to expect that the words and actions they experience in my life are a good match to my professed identity.

Would I be able to pass through “security” today if I were checked on my Christian identity?
