We see in the cure in the mother-in-law of St. Peter that Jesus comes to heal not just our body's but principally the spirit. We must overcome our passions and believe in the power of Jesus Christ. We are all sinners in need of the grace of God. W e hear of the remarkable conversion story of Blessed Bartolo Longo - the Apostle of the Holy Rosary who was a satanist.

This is the central truth in the Catholic Faith. Father Pio unpacks the mystery even before the children of the Parish. Jews and Muslims do not believe in the Divinity of Christ. Christians are not idolatrous and worship more than one God. But we must humbly place ourselves at the foot of the cross and make an act of faith to understand this mystery of 3 Persons in one God..

What does it mean to be infinite - it cannot be measured. We are finite as human beings but God knows all things and knows even all our thoughts. He is Almighty. God allows us to be tempted to overcome them and grow in the life if Christian perfection. Father George tells us again of the stroll along the seashore by St. Augustine when he meets the small child trying to empty out the ocean.
