Hi everyone. We have a Eucharistic Minister in our parish, who we are very good friends with. In fact, he brings Holy Communion to an ill family member, once a week.
On more than one occasion… he has presented an “idea” that makes me uncomfortable. Maybe it’s because I don’t quite understand where he is going with it. I’m not sure.
He hasn’t come right out and said this, but has suggested it strongly. That Jesus didn’t know exactly “Who” He was, from the very beginning. That Our Lord had to “discover” over time, His identity. And he bases this opinion on the following passage:
“And Jesus advanced in wisdom and age and grace before God and men.” (Luke 2:52)
Does anyone know what the Church teaches in regards to this question? I somehow feel, inside… that our ministers opinion isn’t quite correct. How do I respond to him… when he brings this up? Or am I completely wrong… and in need of correction, myself?
Thank you and God bless.
