This week was filled with upheavals. In Myanmar after the cyclone, the government sought to bar aid workers, and the pressure prevented our reporter from publishing his name. In China after the earthquake, China?s government accepted foreign aid for the first time since the 1940s.
In California, the upheaval was a man-made disaster: The Supreme Court redefined ?marriage.?
Strange and startling stuff, all. But for Catholics, on the feast of Corpus Christi, we can understand it as a call to trust. God is the creator and King of the universe. He is the master of the strange and startling. And amid all the upheavals, we can be sure that his promises remain, as always, trustworthy.
