Love in Faith
Faith is a personal act - the free response
of the human person to the initiative of God who reveals himself. But
faith is not an isolated act. No one can believe alone, just as no one
can live alone. You have not given yourself faith as you have not given
yourself life. The believer has received faith from others and should
hand it on to others. Our love for Jesus and for our neighbor impels us
to speak to others about our faith. Each believer is thus a link in the
great chain of believers. I cannot believe without being carried by the
faith of others, and by my faith I help support others in the faith. Catechism
of the Catholic Church 166.
Our moral life has its source in faith in
God who reveals his love to us. St. Paul speaks of the "obedience of
faith" as our first obligation. He shows that "ignorance of God" is the
principle and explanation of all moral deviations. Our duty toward God
is to believe in him and to bear witness to him. CCC 2087.
Confession is at 4.30pm Saturday
before the Vigil Mass or on request.
Catechists carry out a vital service for the
Church in Sutherland by providing education in the faith for Christian
students in the public school system. If you wish to know more about
