Reflections: Virtue Of Faith

There is no use in talking about virtue unless you are (men and) women of faith. We must begin to practice those virtues which were infused into our souls at the moment of baptism. There is a living faith and there is a dead faith. You will advance in the spiritual life in proportion to the living, burning faith you have. In other words, when you see the will of God in everything, when you have a just appreciation of the present life. How can you get a faith like that? You must ask for it. The apostles asked for it. They said to the Lord: "Increase our faith.” (Lk. 17:5) How many of us ever ask God to give us faith? Faith may be increased or faith may be diminished. Faith may be preserved or it may be lost. We must pray for that faith that Christ loves and let it be a simple faith. Oh, the faith of God's children! The faith of a poor, decrepit woman may be greater than that of a Doctor of Divinity because she has heart in it. Pray for this faith       Fr. Thomas A. Judge, CM

 

Reflexiones: la virtud de la fe

No hay razón alguna para hablarles sobre la virtud si ustedes no son (hombres y) mujeres de fe. Debemos comenzar a practicar las virtudes que nuestras almas reciben al momento de nuestro Bautismo. Hayuna fe viva y hay una fe muerta. Avanzarán en la vida espiritual en proporción a la fe viva y ardiente que posean. Es decir, cuando vean la voluntad de Dios en todo, cuando tengan una apreciación justa de la vida presente . . . ¿Cómo pueden adquirir una fe como esa? Deben orar por ella. Los Apóstoles oraron por ella. Dijeron a nuestro Señor: “Aumenta nuestra fe” (Lucas 17, 5). ¿Cuántos de nosotros hemos pedido jamás a Dios que nos conceda la fe? La fe aumenta o disminuye. La fe puede preservarse o puede perderse. Debemos orar por la fe que Cristo ama, y que sea una fe sencilla. ¡O, la fe de los hijos de Dios! La fe de una pobre mujer sencilla puede ser más grande que la fe de un doctor en divinidad porque su corazón está puesto en su fe. Oremos por obtener esa fe..  P. Thomas A. Judge, CM
