Faith. What is it? What do we merit in order to possess it? Nothing! It is a free gift. God in His abundant, endless, mercy has gifted us the gift of faith. We didn't do anything nor can we do anything in order to possess it. God gives it.
If you have faith in God, it will show in your actions.
On this 25th Sunday in Ordinary Time, let us be more open to God's ocean of mercy, so that the faith He has given us may continue to grow each day and bear fruit in our lives.
