“Stand up and go; your faith has saved you.” Luke 17:19
Sharing a beautiful reflection by Pope Benedict XVI on Faith …
“Faith means resisting the brute force that would otherwise pull us under.
Faith is a liberation of my I from its preoccupation with self.
Faith is a breaking out of the isolation that is the malady of my I.
Faith is a new Yes that becomes possible when we are touched by God.
Faith is the finding of a You who upholds me and gives me the promise of an indestructible love.
Faith means fellowship with him who has a power that draws us up, holds us fast, and carries us safely over the elements of death.
To become a believer means to escape our own gravity.”
