Faith is defined as a gift of God that helps us to believe in Him. We profess our faith in the Creed, celebrate it in the sacraments, live by it through our good conduct of loving God and our neighbor, and express it in prayer. It is a personal adherence of the whole person to God, who has revealed Himself to us through words and actions throughout history. I once read that “God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, or sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way. If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.” Our faith tells us that our God is always there for us all we have to do is reach out. Let us reach out this day and every day to help bring others along the journey of Easter faith.
