Prayer of the Day
Feast of St. Peter DamianFebruary 21st, 2014
In to-day’s Gospel Jesus calls the people and his disciples, he said to them; “If you want to be an authentic Christian you must renounce yourself, take up your cross and follow me. Anyone who loses his/her life for my sake and for the sake of the Gospel will save it.” (Mark 8 : 34) Jesus states what is required to be a follower of him. Now, is the time to rediscover Catholicism, some people try everyday, those who seek earnestly to do so are never disappointed.
This is the way to talk to people who have never done a good act, but claim that they have faith. “You say you have faith and I have good deeds, I will prove to you that I have faith by showing you my good deeds – now you prove to me that you have faith without any good deeds to show. You believe in one God – that is credible enough, but the demons have the same belief and they tremble with fear. Senseless people don’t realise that faith without good works is useless.” (James 2 : 14-20)
