Series: Faith Works

How does faith “work”?

We use the term “faith” in almost every religious conversation and context. But what does it mean? How do you know if you have it? How does someone walk in faith? Can you lose your faith? What is the ultimate point of having faith?


Homily from the Thirty-first Sunday in Ordinary Time.

The Christian Faith will never be relevant if it remains at the level of private, personal belief and does not transform our lives. Faith is meant to move us. Faith is meant to transform us. Faith is meant to bear fruit in a life that looks like the life of Jesus. The fruit of faith is a changed life. A faith that works is a faith that moves…and this is the only kind of faith that matters.

Homily from the Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time.

Are you stuck in the trap where you have to do enough, so that you have enough, in order to be enough? If faith merely comes down to presenting God with our resume, then we are not faithful…we are superstitious. Christian faith is appealing to Jesus’ work, not ours. Christian faith is about appealing to Jesus’ victory, not ours.Christian faith is about appealing to Jesus’ goodness, not our own.

Homily from the Twenty-ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time.

Every great story needs a beginning. But it needs more than just a beginning. A great story requires tension, obstacles, and patient perseverance. When we give God our “yes”, even when we don’t know how the story will end, we are walking the path of faith. This path is necessary to become the people God will us to be. But it is easy to forget and hard to remember the reasons we are walking in the first place. Because of that, we all need reminders in our lives who call us back to our “yes”.

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.
