Life is a story

“Life is not simply a bare succession of events, but a history, a story waiting to be told through the choice of an interpretative lens that can select and gather the most relevant data. In and of itself, reality has no one clear meaning. Everything depends on the way we look at things, on the lens we use to view them.… For us Christians, that lens can only be the good news, beginning with the Good News par excellence: ‘the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Son of God’ (Mk 1:1).”  — Pope Francis

Reflection: Which stories of faith do you tell most often? What beliefs and attitudes shape the lens you use to interpret what you see in the world? How does this lens compare to the lens of the Gospel of Jesus Christ?
