Your Faith Has Saved You

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Whenever Our Lord had a chance, He called attention to the necessity of our having a deep abiding faith.

On one occasion a woman who was suffering from haemorrhage for twelve years was cured simply by touching the tassel of his cloak-so strong was her faith.

Our Lord turned to her and explained why she was miraculously healed. And Jesus said: “Take courage, daughter, your faith has saved you.” (Matt 9:20)

Our Lord was always pleased when He found faith. This is why St. Paul could say: “Without faith it is impossible to please God.” (Hebrews 11:6)

We, too, must live in the spirit of faith. Our faith must be a deep abiding faith which sees the hand of God in all the events of daily living. Pray daily for an increase of faith.
