“The grace of Faith is perhaps the most powerful of the graces.
Without Faith, we become empty shells of ourselves. Without the capacity to believe in something greater than ourselves—even in our own higher potential—what is this life about?
Life becomes reduced to an experience that begins and ends, nothing more than a moment of birth that unravels until the last breath. Grabbing stuff becomes the goal, even though in the end, you’ll die no matter how much stuff you have acquired.
I would believe in God for no other reason than this: not believing presents an unbearable portrait of life.
Even the benefits of doing good or being kind are fleeting, brightening the day but leaving the soul starving after dark. We need Faith—if only to believe that every positive action we take, no matter how small, matters in some way.
And we need to direct our faith into prayer, into mystical, silent dialogue with the Divine. And it is a dialogue, a deeply holy one that is heard and always returned.
We matter in ways that defy reason and earthly calculations.
Heaven does not measure our value by earthly productivity. It is not a corporation counting profits. It calculates acts of Faith, love, charity, forgiveness, kindness, trust, and compassion. This is your true currency.
Believing in that one holy truth—that we do matter—means that regardless of how dark the moment we are enduring is, there is guidance hidden within. There, we find holy companionship, and a way through.”
