I was struck by the humility
showed in this chapter. He was in
consultation with his son – certainly not speaking to the entire Church – and yet,
because of the office he held he needed to be careful not to speak beyond the
limits the Lord set. He cautiously,
carefully limited himself to saying only what he knew to be true.
He had considered the question for some time, and he came to an opinion (one ultimately correct). But he still was open about what he did and what he did not know – he admitted that certain mysteries were not made fully known unto him, and because of that he would forebear speaking on them.
Good advice for us all.
