Your prayers are asked for Michael Farrow. Michael has been under instruction in the Catholic faith and will be baptized and confirmed on Friday, August 27th after the daily Mass.
Saint Paul reminds us that God Himself is the “efficient cause” of our salvation. It is only by the shedding of the blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross that our salvation is merited. Faith is the instrument by which this redemption becomes effective in each individual person. God makes us righteous. Righteousness in now made manifest in the person of Christ and in the Gospel.
We should remember that salvation does not depend upon fulfillment of the law, but only faith in the Son of God merits our salvation. It is not the law which saves, but “faith in Jesus Christ.”
Faith in God and in His Church is therefore among our greatest gifts. We must always pray for an increase in faith. We must continue to nourish our faith, grow in it, and cherish it as one of our most prized possessions.
Sincerely in Christ,
Rev. Jeffery A. Fasching
