Did you know that if a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, it DOESN’T make a noise?
Yes, that’s true. The tree’s fall will send out a sound wave. And it remains only a wave until it comes in contact with an ear which processes it as sound.
At least that’s the theory. Proving it is something else altogether.
Today’s gospel asks a similar question: If you have gifts and talents and you bury them under ground so no one can see them, how do you live...(the whole thing here)
