Third Monday of Easter

 

From the Word of the Day

This is the work of God is this: to believe in the one He has sent.   (John 6: 29)

 

 How should we live this Wordthomas 1

Every work manifests and makes known the author in order to understand as well as possible the person of Jesus.  We must receive Him as the one sent by God the Father and as His revealer.  Only in this way can we have life in us and imitate Him in our life and thus arrive at salvation.  Being a Christian requires us to live in a deep dimension of faith, not only in words, but above all with actions.  If faith is a gift of God, we still have the responsibility to accept it or refuse it.  Faith demands that we place God in first place in our life; that we leave aside our egoism in order to open ourselves to God.

Let us pray with Thomas:  My Lord and my God! 

The Voice of Pope Francis 

Faith always leads to witness.  Faith is an encounter with Jesus Christ, with God.  It is born from here and leads to witness.  (Homily, February 21, 2014)
