Roman Catholic Angel Statue

Posted on the 2nd Day of the 31st Week of Ordinary Time - 2006 AD - (Year B)

Faith. It is a much misused word. It is often used in general terms, sometimes in place of the word 'religion' or 'belief'. Faith is more an activity than a thought process. It is the active, living bridge between the natural world in which we live, and God's supernatural Kingdom. It is the mechanism we have been given to bridge the gap. Where our finite sphere of reason and activity reaches its limit, there Faith carries us across the void. Faith is implanted in us by Christ, the seed within, given to us all as a free gift by virtue of His Sacrifice. Prayer, Scripture and especially Holy Communion activate this Faith within us, allow us to see with new eyes, hear with clarity the sublime truth of the living Word. Faith is a word of true beauty, the beauty of the supernatural world it joins us to, grafts us onto, as we remain weak humans lifted up and given new nature by Our Lord Jesus Christ. Faith at once binds us, and sets us truly free.
