10/09/16 Faith Works: Beginning Faith
"Something happened to me…and now I’m Yours."
Homily from the Twenty-eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time.
Faith is first of all a response. It is the response to an encounter with God. In a completely free way, God reveals Himself. Intellectual faith responds with “I believe you”. Living faith responds with “I want to behave in the way you are calling me to”. Simple faith responds with “I belong to you”. Ultimately, faith is “saying yes” to God.
