Faith Makes Everyone a Mystery

This, I think, is why the supposed discovery of Jesus' tomb has received so much attention. Like the long-ago occupants of bone boxes dug up in Jerusalem, the spiritual lives of those all around us are known only through glimpses and guesses.

Faith makes everyone a mystery, and stories about faith can sometimes remind us how little we know — not just about God, or religion, but each other.
